This is a picture of a little poodle named Shelby done on 140 watercolor paper using ShinHan watercolors.

Shelby was eating pancakes with her owners outside a diner and my friend and I happened to walk by. I took several pictures of the little girl and decided to paint her. I don't think I would change a thing on this picture, as I am very pleased with the outcome. Lately I have been doing commission work on several animal portraits.

Found Shelby's Owners!
by: Stephanie Sullivan

I found Shelby's owners and they were brought to tears when opening the box with the watercolor inside. It was such a joy to give it to them. I was so glad that my efforts in painting Shelby was not in vain.

Hi Stephany,

The look in his (her) eyes is so good. You characterized this dog very well.

Hope to see more!

Thanks
by: Stephanie

Thanks to all who wrote in with the kind comments. I am currently trying desperately to find Shelby's owners, as they have moved. I really want to give them this watercolor. I have made a call to the only number I have and hope they respond.

She looks so regal. I'm very impressed, and I wouldn't change a thing either! Shelby should be honored.
