It's funny how sometimes you fall into things - and as a freelancer you fall into many different things that you never even thought about before. And - this has happened to me a lot! I fell into surface pattern design a few years ago when I was first asked to create a repeat pattern to be applied to a scarf - I had no idea how to make repeat patterns but said yes anyway. So I went home and looked for tutorials online and somehow manged to learn it all and get the work done in time. The client was very happy with it and I have successfully been designing scarves ever since. Anyway - I recently got asked to paint a pet portrait for a friend of the family and showed it to some more people who also said they would like a pet portrait. So maybe I am now falling into pet portraits? They are so lovely to do so I don't mind at all and Oscar the Beagle is one of my first attempts so I hope you all approve.

Sometimes when you say a word enough times repeatedly - it starts to sound strange and sometimes funny. The same thing happens sometimes when I draw a thing repeatedly - Only my eyes go a bit blurry and then the drawings just look a bit weird and wonky and I can't decide if they even look like what they are supposed to or not.... do other people get that?
