Painting Piper (a video)

my cousin's wife asked me to paint a picture of their 
black lab, piper as a surprise gift from her to him.
OH MY!
i don't paint animals...do i?
can i?
can i say no?
ummm...no.
maybe &
(hardly) never.
so i tried.
first i made a canvas from tongue & groove floor boards
from the 1800's
then i lit a candle
said a prayer
and painted...

  3. Oh yeah, you can paint animals. I know you can paint anything your heart tells you. Piper is awesome, and his daddy loves it, you can see it in his smile.

  4. Piper is a beautiful painting Lisa in so many ways.
    I need to start praying before I paint too.

  5. Always enjoy seeing your work in progress. I like the floorboard as canvas, I like the detail of the tag, I like the tiny bits of red in the background. Ok, I really like the painting!
