'Grace' ©Anita Davies 2007
This is an acrylic portrait of 'Grace', my Dad's dog, I painted for him this past Christmas. I've just grabbed it back so I can sign and varnish it as I ran out of time last December.
We live next door to one another and it was tough trying to photograph Grace, paint her and keep it a secret from him. At one point he entered my studio and I had just enough time to throw a rag over it, he sat right next to it while we chatted and looked through every painting he could reach...except this one!
He loved his Christmas surprise.
