Pet Portrait: Bayla

colored pencil drawing of bernese mountain dog bayla, from the chest up, with a sweet smile on her faceMy older daughter is home from college, where she is majoring in graphic design. She was recently commissioned by a dog park friend to do a pet portrait of their 4-year old Bernese mountain dog, Bayla.

I keep encouraging my daughter to set up an Etsy shop for her artwork, but she's eighTEEN, with the emphasis on TEEN, meaning she doesn't always want to take old mom's direction. She enjoys drawing, but she's rather unmaterialistic, so making money is just not a big priority to her! Go figure! Other examples of her pet portraits are here and here.

P.S. If you know Bayla, please don't say anything to her owners--the portrait is a surprise for Christmas from Bayla's dad to Bayla's mom!

That's amazing! She gets her artistic skills from her mama.

That picture is beautiful. She would have lots of clients in DWB land if she ever decided to go public.

Slobbers,

Once again, gorgeous picture (and gorgeous dog). Honestly, your daughter could help pay for school doing pet portraits! They look so professional!
