MUDDY IF


This illustration is from the book "Poodle and Doodle" I couldn't resist using it for the prompt, "Muddy". The big dog, Scruffy, digs holes all over the yard and poor little Angel is always falling in them and getting all muddy.

  11. Took me awhile to make my visits - thanks for stopping by Jack you are such an inspiration to all of us! It is so much fun visiting your site, your characters are a treat & you execute them so well with such personality. These guys are a riot, I'm guessing angel is pretty annoyed by most everything Scruffy does? I still need to know how to get a copy of your book!

  12. I think this is interesting, your choice of focus and soft focus. Could this be the start of a new direction? The eyes are crisp and clean and alive!
