Happy 60th Birthday Dad



It's my Dad's 60th Birthday today so yesterday I painted him a card of his dog 'Grace' using a sheet of 16x12" Sanders Waterford watercolour paper, a pigment liner and Schmincke watercolours.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Funny, you don't look a thing like him! Seriously, though, that is a gorgeous painting of Grace and I'm sure he's going to be over the moon about such a loving gesture on your part.

What a wonderful card! Everyone I know has so much stuff. A gift such as this is much more meaningful!

My heart stopped when I saw this card - we had a dog that looked just like that, Henry, lived to be 15. It's a beautiful portrait of Grace, your dad will love it :)
