After that, I spent the remainder of the weekend working on the Pekingese commission. I decided to change up the background from the solid blue to a more natural setting--I think it works much better. There is still a lot of work to do before this piece is finished, but I think it's coming along very nicely.
I finished a couple of mini-paintings over the weekend too. They are 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 except for the beautiful blue-eyed kitty on the left--that one is 4 x 4. I enjoyed painting them all, but I think my favorite is the little piggies.
