Meet Heidi, a friend's Schnauzer, and truly the "queen bee" and love of her family. Guess most family pets fit into that category! I had a ton of photos to paint from, but knew immediately that this was the pose that stood out of all the rest. She does look very queenly and proud of herself, don't you think! 


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Je comprends votre ressenti... Pourquoi plus telle photo qu'une autre déclenche l'envie de dessiner ? Le mystère...
    J'aime beaucoup ce portrait. C'est une très belle peinture et il peut être fier !
    Gros bisous ❀ ❁ ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎ ❁ ❀ et des caresses à ce charmant toutou.

  2. Great choice for giving Heidi the honor she deserves, Ann. I think this is a fabulous portrait!!
