When I saw the reference photo I used for this painting taken by Kristan Hankewycz of her greyhound "Fanny" I just had to paint it. So I did with her permission and I enjoyed every minute capturing the elegance of this beautiful hound.
I was asked to participate in the "As We See Ourselves II" Self Portrait show at the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg. I worked from a photo that my grandson, Dylan, took of me and changed it up a little but it was taken a few years ago when glasses and hair-do were different but he caught me in a moment of thought so I will call this "Contemplation".
Never too soon to start thinking about Christmas Cards so I am announcing my new design with a Gettysburg theme. A Civil War Santa is seated next to the Abraham Lincoln Statue with 3 greyhounds and the Gettysburg tree in the background. If you own a greyhound, love one or know a friend that does, this would be the perfect card for them. I am selling these cards for $4 for a single card or $8 for a pack of 4 cards or $15 for a pack of 8 cards.
