Many years ago, just when I was starting out in pastels and my pet portrait business I painted the lovely Breac, a gorgeous yellow lab. I am now painting another commission for them, of their gorgeous springer spaniel Alfie. I started him today after finishing Basil, bar any amendments. I will get a scan of him over the weekend.

Rebus will be leaving me early next week to go to his forever home.

The bad news is, I seem to be coming down with a rotten cold. I hope it disappears quickly as I don’t have time to be ill at the moment.

I will ensure I get some photos to add to my blog tomorrow as I just have the energy to do much more today!
