Jessie's photo shoot

I've been meaning to do this for a while, so today I finally did a photo shoot of our dog Jessie. Several years ago I did a portrait of Nellie (the other dog, Jessie's sister) as a "sample dog portrait." It's been a popular image, and as a matter of fairness it only seems proper that I do a portrait of Jessie too. She's 12 years old now and really slowing down, a lot. So today seemed like the right day to try to get some really good photos, and I did get several to choose from. Decision time, I have to figure out which one really captures her best. And then decide on graphite or colored pencil. Maybe I need a sample graphite dog portrait? She would look classy in black and white. This probably won't be an immediate project. But soon...within a few months.

Yup, that's mud on her nose...
