Palms Liked this Photo

Palm suggested I post this photo for folks to play with.

Her name is Kaycee, but we call her "Tude" because she really has an attitude! She's the pup that broke my shoulder last month.

She did a fantastic smudge version which I will upload as post 2 to this thread.

Johnnie B, Thank you, she is kinda cute. LOL (no bias here..grin)

She wanted to chase the ducks in the lake and she took off with my hand tangled up in her leash. She pulled me down, broke my left shoulder. "Shame on you, Kaycee! You broke mama!) LOL

I too bow to Palms, master of the smudge. I hope to learn the technique some day...time... all I need is time.

That is funny :-)

... and here I'm thinking: I must be the only one that has had an arm twisted by a Saint Bernard

I did a smudge, but not as good as Palms. I then added texture and painted that back in with the art history brush (used a dry brush).

Patricia Kay...

Thank you. I'm discovering that, done well, smudging can be very time consuming and addictive!

Hey, Craig... Punk cut would look good on her. Go for it. LOL
