Here's a commission I had recently of a gorgeous pitbull. The lady who rescued him commissioned it for the lady who adopted him! He was really fun to do, but I am partial to pits, as my beloved Otto, who is 11, is one!
11 x 17 colored pencil on Mi Teintes pastel paper.

Robin, this is a beautiful painting. I'm not sure that I would ever want to own a pit bull, but this one looks really cute and lovable.

You have really captured the personality of the lovely animal. Beautiful!
Judy, this is fantastic. Very cute exression.
Oops, I'm Judy. But I agree with you, kickie, this is great, Robin!
What a cutie. I've met some very nice pit bulls...
Nature knows no borders
Beautfully done Robin!! And I love colored pencil on Mi Tientes - I use that combo a lot! Do you have any issues with “waxing” a month or so after you have completed your projects? I am currently using Prismcolors and I sometimes get that - particularly in the dark areas. Suggestions?
Looking forward to seeing your next masterpiece
Judy, Robin, sorry for the mixup. Robin I still think this is areally good painting.
Aw, thanks everyone! I don't mind being mixup up with Judy!! She might not feel the same!
As far as wax bloom, I have had this issue. I wipe, leave it sit a few days, during which I wipe, and then I spray it with a fixative about five times.
I also stopped using the wax "blender pencil" which I believe adds to wax bloom, along with thinner used to blend. I blend with a brush.
Robin, this is FANTASTIC!
I'm wondering if you would allow me to share this portrait on my blog.
I'd be more than happy to add credit and any information that you would like to inform people of your services and contact information.

Utterly incredible! I LOVE IT!
I'm a big fan of the breed and feel like I could just hold that sweet face. Something about it reminds me of all those old oil panting you see. I'm sure it was a joy to be part of that. I know I love doing something that I know will be a gift.
Hi Robin, Lovely painting! I paint alot of animal paintings. I just finished a 2 year commitment for my local shelter. I painted 100% for donations to our shelter. We are a small community and needed the funds. But~That's not the most important thing I have to tell you. Our Shelter Head is fabulous. Her name is Regina Wells. She is a very attractive 55ish Lady that works her way into dog fighting rings across the South. On one of her "busts" she rescued the bait dog. He had been in the ring for awhile. He is as gentle as a lamb. He walked into my home, so that I could photograph him. My 2 old *** licked his face and my fat rescued cocker laid down with him. Regina took him to the Georgia State House. A law was passed called "Sherman's Law". We don't have to catch you in the act~all we need is evidence! = you go to the pokey!!! We have the ability now (and resources) to differenceate between dog, human and other animal blood. Grown politicians cried that day. Thank you for what you are doing. Dottie in Georgia.
