The latest doggie pet portrait is complete and I’ve named it Jackeroo. Our Jack Russell, Tashi, charged at Jackeroo when she first saw him on the design wall. It was hilarious to see her barking at the portrait (with a ball in her mouth of course!) while dancing around on her hind legs. There and then it was clear that I’d captured the spirit of this cute canine.
Jack Russells are bouncy and energetic so I chose to quilt all the curly cues on the patterned background and then I inserted a thin internal border of a black and white aboriginal print to set him off.
Tashi still thinks there’s an intruder in her house.
Jackeroo was inspired by a photo taken by Paige Kerr (www.gobeyondtheleash.com).
