Ziggy and the firefly

- by Heide Hibbard

This week's theme: Past Pet Portrait Swaps

During the month of August, EBSQ holds its annual Pet Portrait Swap. It works just like the EBSQ Portrait Swap except that EBSQ members exchange photographs of their pets. When completed, the artist enters the piece in the Pet Portrait Swap show. As August has come and gone it's now time for you to go to the "Pet Portrait Swap '08" show page and vote for your favorite pet portrait. When you are there, you can even use chipin.com to contribute to the prize kitty. In the meantime, while you are considering which entry to vote for, Art Of The Day presents work from previous EBSQ Pet Portrait Swaps for you to enjoy.


Art: Ziggy and the firefly  by Artist Heide Hibbard
This is Sheri Crawford's dog, Ziggy. Ziggy was a fun dog to paint. She has wild-girl fur which I smoothed out a bit for her portrait. I wanted to paint lots of purples and blues in the fur so I thought it would work well to have an evening sky. I added the fireflies for company
