Back in June I got a request from a girl I went to high school with. She has just moved into a new condo and was looking for the perfect thing to showcase her personality and "claim" the space.
I got a terribly nice email from her, in which she said she didn't realize I was so "talented." God love her for calling it talent :)
She sent me pictures of her two fur babies.
Talulah and Georgia.
She wrote me a little description of each, which cracked me up.
She had a few other requests...my first pink background (which I was thrilled about...I think it makes them fancier and I like that) along with some simple things like bows and collars.
I took my sweet time, but this is how it turned out in the end.
I did go back and add in eyelashes. Apparently Talulah's are super long. You can't seem them in the pictures, but this girl has lashes and she rockes em!
See...I am a bit jealous of them!
This is Georgia
I love her wonky ear.
For some reason, Georgia was so hard for me to get right! I painted her 3 times. Thank goodness the background was easy to repaint! But, I just can't have someone pay me for something I think is not good...and turns out, third time is the charm!
I sent Ashley pictures to get her OK, before I wrapped it and shipped it. Again, always the fretter, I hovered over my email until I got her response. Thankfully, she was very gracious in her reply.
I am thrilled! There is nothing better than when a piece turns out the way your client expects. I can only hope that everyone I paint for loves their pets and their paintings the way Ashley does. I am sure it will be fab in her new place! And, in my opinion, every girl deserves a pink painting!
