Pet Portrait: Sophie the Havenese

Sophie Small

The ladies at my grandma’s assisted living facility have been very supportive of my work, but every time I’ve displayed my stuff there they’ve been disappointed that I don’t have any white floofy dogs in my portfolio. Well, no more! I’ve finally added one small dog breed that they’ve been asking for. Meet Sophie the Havanese.

Up Next: This upcoming week I’ll be starting a new pet portrait commission, but I can’t tell you anything about it because it’s a gift. Which means no progress pics on my instagram or FB page, just the final post on this website. Also, we’re days away from the Cardinals’ season starting so I will be doing my best to get to a game and add some new players to my collection. Diaz, Fowler, Adams, Grichuk, Piscotty… So many to get to!

Until next time!
