Heart Break Charlie, Strong Bond of Family

“Charlie”, portrait ©2014 alecia goodman to present

Not too long ago I had a blonde haired blue eyed baby boy. We went to a play group at the local hospital here. We met some wonderful moms and dads… making many friends for life. One of these moms, Sarah, let me be part of a super secret Christmas present for her husband. It was a portrait of their fur baby Charlie, a beautiful lab and so sweet too. I finished the portrait and was ready to ship it to her as they had moved, miss them terribly. I was heart broken and sad to find out Charlie wasn’t doing very well at all. As requested I held on to the portrait for an additional week while the family said their good byes. Thank you for letting me create this portrait for you. Media gray paper and charcoal pencil

I submitted this to Illustration Friday for the category of “Strong”. I believe there are strong bonds of family between friends and fur babies.

Don’t Give Me Those Puppy Dog Eyes.

I love the expression on Cole’s face. He is just so sweet… reminds me of a lap dog or puppy, though he is really pretty big dog. I have started working in the shadows and highlights. Its a bit tricky to figure out some of the texture. Soon I should be able to start working in some of the background to give his position more context.

New Set Up in Search of Gold

This is my new project, a portrait of Cole. Just started of course so I am a bit anxious. I have a new table and set up. It took a while to get everything back into working order. Very excited to see how he turns out. I am looking forward to gold, the beauty at the finish. Hopefully this brings a smile to his mama’s face.
