When I was commissioned to do a Painting of this cutie Marley, I was very hesitant. You see, I had another painting to live up to of their other dog Manny. In my head I never thought I would be able to come close to as good as it was. Try as I did to talk the client out of it, she had faith in me that I could do it, so I figured.... lets try this! (Thanks again Mel!!)
I decided to get back to my schooling and try to remember how I had painted my self portrait in college.
