Finished the Paintings before the Crazy Weekend!

I thought I'd do a quick post before leaving to start my first shift at work today.
I'm doing the double shift thing, that's what happens when someone gets sick and you manage the place.
It's a VERY busy weekend and the kennel is at full capacity, actually overflowing because it's the start of Spring Break season. But I'm fortunate because my youngest niece Lily works with me and has volunteered to come help me on both shifts. Thank God for that kid! I adore her. She will be turning 18 next month and she's been helping me since she was 9 years old. When she was little she wanted to have a REAL job and Doc told her when she could drive, she could have one. So last year when she got her own car, she kept him to his word. She has been learning all my quirks and preferences all these years and she's dog/cat crazy just like me, So I am VERY lucky.

So...... I FINALLY finished the commissioned paintings of Tyke and Fritz for Anne!!!!
She wanted Bright and Folk Art, so I layered papers and paint in turquoise and bright green.
Then I layered up the dogs.
Below are the photos of the dogs and the paintings :
 and FRITZ
 I'm off to work now! Have a Great Weekend!

Very charming! With all that great texture, they appear to be large murals on a plaster wall. something like that. Sweet!! I'll bet the people will be thrilled with these.

Really fantastic and it looks like you have found your calling! I love how the little white dog is smiling in his photo. You really captured both dog personalities!
