These images (at right) show the
feather as it was being completed.  
Just a few more brush strokes
and it's done!  
Lynda always holds her paintings
while she is working on them,
keeping the reference work
close at hand for comparison to her
work.  This is especially important
when she is working on custom
paintings of pets, people, etc.

A SIMPLE TIP

If you want to commission a painting
of your pet, the first step
is to supply the artist,
(whoever they may be)
with good photos of the animal.  

As any pet owner will know,
these animals sneak into
your heart and become
part of your family.  
Good reference photos make it
possible for an artist to
get a feel for the animal
and to capture their individual
personalities in their work.
