It all started with painting a portrait of  this wolf at an art workshop put on by Lesley Harrison, a famous artist. When I came home there were no wolves to paint. But there many Pomeranian and other dogs which are just like tiny wolves.  I have been painting dogs in ever since. Yes, I was trained by Lesley Harrison …who receives between $15,000 and $35,000 for each of her portraits. She has become world famous and has books she has written on her techniques.  It cost me almost $3,000 to attend four of her excellent workshops. The portraits I learned how to paint are very unusual. They are painted in pastel on a velour-like surface made only in Germany.  I have hundreds of pastels in every conceivable color.  Each pastel can cost up to $5, so I have a very lot of money invested in my art supplies.  And my beloved hubby never flinched at spending all that money. Lol.
