Sage

actual size 11"X14"

My last surprise christmas present! Hand delivered... the client loved it! Yeah! This one was a little more difficult than I expected... all that white... or actually lots of color on a white dog. So many shades of pink and purple. I really have to be careful that all the grays, pinks, purples, and browns don't become dirty looking. After I had the head done, I thought it would al be a breeze... but all the swirls in Sage's chest kept me busy all last nite and half of today!! I debated whether or not to put her collar in. Finally decided she looked naked with out it! Plus it matched her so well!
