Portrait of Ruby

This is one of the commissions I had to finish for Christmas.  It is a pet portrait of Ruby, a King Charles Spaniel.  Her owners are avid readers, so the client wanted her on the Kindle as if to say, “Hey, put your book down and let’s play!”  Ruby is a beautiful dog!  Enjoy the pictures of the portrait from almost start to finished, matted and placed in the beautiful frame the client had just for this project!
