This is a portrait of our dog Daisy, she is ten years old and absolutely gorgeous.  She is also very hard to take a good photo of because of her colour, but I finally managed somehow to get one, and made this painting of her from it.  I used mixed media for Daisy, pencil, charcoal, paint and gold leaf in the background.  Not only is the dog hard to photograph, but because of the gilt metallic, so is the painting!
