Today’s portrait is of American Artist Acey Thompson, known on flickr as AlmostPhony, with her great companions Aubrey and Maggie. As a sometimes pet portraitist I could not resist the fabulous canines. I’m also drawn to Acey’s own canine portraits whether they’re strong graphics in black and white, or full color paintings with carefully modeled shadows and light.
