When I first began designing greeting cards for our family business, Creations in a Teapot, I experimented with some small scale oil paintings.
This is one of the designs I toyed with several years ago. However, it never made it into the greeting card range.
In preparation for this painting I managed to convince my sister to pose in full winter gear (during the middle of summer) with one of the family dogs.
I would like to eventually reattempt this image in watercolour to add to the Christmas range......
