Full weekend ahead

This weekend will be a busy one for my painting, and I'm really looking forward to it! I will be completing three paintings and will send them out next week. One of them features two adorable, feisty little Pomeranians (Link & Leila), another one stars Nina & Violet. Violet's a chihuahua (SO cute - long haired, caramelish rusty colored coat, adorable face, smiling eyes...and smiling face, too) and Nina is the cutest cock-headed little Yorkie you ever saw, with a funny habit of lifting one of her paws in a delicate lady-like way. I'm also painting a very sweet doggie named Abby-Gail, a now-deceased (may she rest in peace) doggie who had a penchant - and an apparent immunity - to chocolate!! I hope the portrait brings her family some comfort.
