I Get By With a Little Help From My Glasses

I finally (FINALLY) got around to doing a painting of my parents' dog, Peppy.  Peppy passed away last year shortly before Christmas, and has been missed by everyone.  Everyone except Lucy :)

8 x 10 acrylic on canvas

I was a little late getting this done for one of the painting was on Dec. 23rd.  I didn't have my glasses with me and it was off to a horrible start.  So awful I wanted to cry and throw it out.  So awful that it was embarassing.  So awful that it was just too funny. 

I probably would have completed it in time for Christmas if not for feeling it was a lost cause but today I jumped back in and, for the most part, fixed it.  I'm still not thrilled with the muzzle area and want to tweak that, but it's tad better than it looked on Sunday:

Day One - UGH!

Day Two (detail)
