On a technical note, there were really no good photos of Olive, but I found a variety of reference pictures and pulled together all the elements that defined Olive, adding the coloring, changing the pose, etc. So if you don't have the 'perfect' photo, don't worry, I can still make a great portrait. Of course, if you have a great photo, that's nice too :)
I am working on quite a few commissions, but they are all for Christmas, so you won't see them until January. I have quite a few K-9 and Search & Rescue portrait donations lined up and should be posting some of them next week.
Thanks for looking, and please feel free to comment or email me - I would love to hear from you.
