I have decided to commission a portrait of the dogs. (No, it’s not my “something frivolous”!) A friend of mine liked a portrait on facebook and it was fantastic so I had a look at the artist’s website. Sarah Eden specializes in oil portraits, mainly of pets. I had a look through her gallery and there was one of a young dachshund that look uncannily like Pedro. I was hooked. So I got in contact and she gave me some tips for getting good pictures. I haven’t heard back yet as to whether they are a good enough quality for a portrait but I like them anyway.
