Pearl was a miniature dachshund that was part of my parent’s household for many years. Sadly, my little puppy-sister passed away last year. My folks do have two other dogs and a cute cat, but Pearl will be missed. I called her Pearly Whirly, and I loved how she would snuggle with me in the morning when I visited. My folks got up early, and I did not. Apparently, Pearl wasn’t an early riser, either, so she would sleep with me until I decided to get up. My dad compiled a picture collage of pearly, and I thought it would be a good idea to give him a picture of Pearl for Christmas. She was a butterball! I painted just her head and my parents loved the painting Pearly Whirly
Below is the acrylic painting I did. As with my other acrylics, I textured a lot and added lots of glazes. This is the first picture I did of a pet, and I was happy with the results
One thought on “Pearly Whirly”
I love this picture of Pearl. Totally captured the sweet essence of her personality. She was a loving little thing!
