The Fruit of the Labor

The Labor of Love Produces Fruit

In my Last Post, I described the lengthy, but fulfilling process of finishing a 5×7 pet portrait, but I didn’t have a chance to take a good photo of the finished painting to show to my readers.

Since that time, I have.

And here it is!:

Pip Bull portrait
If you compare this with the image in the last post, you will see that the shoulder is more muscular, the chest deeper, and the wrinkles in the neck are slightly smoothed otu. The color is also slightly different, matching the actual color of the painting closer in this one.

So painting, while a labor, is a labor that produces a fruit, and I for one am happy with the results of this painting.
