We're hanging out with a family of glassblowers in the high country of Colorado. They own a husky named Dea who has a sleeping mat near the wood stove. The challenge was figuring how to get her to settle around us strangers.
We took her for a long walk and gave her a little taste of honey baked ham. Best friends for life!
She got sleepy and comfortable and curled up in husky style, with the nose beneath the tail, just what I was hoping for. Still, I figured I might only have 15 minutes to paint her before she got up and changed position.
Painting is a sort of drawing. The only difference is that the brush and paint give you much more versatility and control.
