Sophie, Painting Star

A couple of posts ago I showed you the first painting I ever did of Sophie, when she was just a pup, and chock full o’ beans.

And the last time I had her in a painting, she was asleep in the middle of a four-dog pile-up:

That’s her, there in the middle.

In today’s new painting, she’s awake, solo, still full o’ beans, and thrilled to be the star of her own painting once again!

Shhhhhh .... no autographs, please. The star needs her beauty sleep!

Sophie is a doll. Love the colors and Sophie's expression.

Beautiful colour and design as usual....and Sophie looking quite the Princess :)

Ruth, thank you ... She IS a doll, and she gets away with way more than she should because of that!

Elizabeth, thanks, I'll tell Sophie about your "princess" comment ... she'll love that; she already thinks she’s the "It Girl" !
