My first commission measuring 11x14. Phinney is a Springer Spaniel and an adorable one at that. I'm pleased with how this came out. I decided to go with a 'fade' effect for the fur on the bottom instead of finishing the fur to the end of the board. I think it adds a nice artistic touch. I need to start timing how long these are taking me. I believe I worked on Phinney for a few weeks, taking about an hour, hour and a half each day. My next commission I will start to count the hours, out of my own curiosity.
