Sometimes puppies can be heavy, especially when they need a bath.

    That is so true Kate. It is what got me started in art back when I was little and it is very relaxing to return to.

    Thank you for the nice comment.

    Very delicate and wonderful. I like the pose of the little girl and just the indication of the water tub, to let the viewer know the story. Very appealing!

    Aww, this is so beautiful, I love it! I think this pretty much me when I was little, always toting some poor puppy around…

    This is adorable!
    I know that there is nothing heavier than a puppy that does not want to have a bath

    Beautiful work. And there’s a great iron here. Though the image depicts weight, and the topic is heavy, your lines and use of value depicts a delicate lightness. Brilliant!!

    You have hidden your talent from us for too long. We now know who to go to for an illustration at work :) This is beatifully drawn. You can really feel the heaviness of the doggie. And I like how you have left out the unimportant parts fading into the background.
