Cavalier King Charles in Gouache

Well, in spite of having a J.O.B. I have managed to complete one of the commissions I took from the dog show in April. This little guy is Seamus and he is a delightful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Thanks go out to Tom for trusting me again with creating another painting of his champion dogs and to Family Tree Images for the use of their photo.

I am still trying to adjust to my new schedule and I am finding it a bit challenging to try to fit in quality painting time. I honestly do not know how some women who are also artists find the time to paint and still care for family and home and not be insane or exhausted. I'm feeling a little of both lately. It's very hard for me to keep creative juices flowing and not be totally overwhelmed. If anyone has a great suggestion as to how to do this I'd really love to know! In the mean time I will keep plugging along and hope that this situation will even out and I will find some peace with it.
