I've Been Avoiding Murphy

I forced myself to get back to him tonight.  He's coming along, although I'm worried that I'm overworking things.  Just trying to keep enjoying it all as a learning experience...

As of the end of today - hopefully not too much longer!

Murphy...Getting There

I've added some colour to make Murphy more fun.  At the last moment I added the golden yellow here and there and I'm wishing I hadn't.  Overall I'm happy with the way he's turning out, and hoping that he'll be done after my next visit to the studio.  Maybe the visit after the next visit...

Another Hour With Murphy

Not as productive as the first hour, in fact I had a really tough time just getting myself to put paint on the pallette...I didn't know how to get back into it even though I'd been looking forward to it all day!
I keep going back and forth on doing dark colours for the underneath, and then putting the lighter fur on top, and that's making it a bit fussy and muddy.  I think I need to hold back a bit and get all of the "under colours" done.  It's all a learning process, and I've got much to learn.
I've decided to get a bit more colourful with him.  His Mom has described him as quite the character, so I think he deserves to have a few fun splashes in there.  I just hope I can keep it loose and fun!

$2.3 Million Dollars Raised!

...and I'm proud to have been a part of it!
Last night was the 4th Annual True Patriot Love Foundation's Tribute Dinner.  I knew people who were at the event, and they sent me the photos below. 
His ears needed to be perked up a bit, but I like the way they tilted his head :)
