My first commission was this perfect pooch named Dixie Dean (yes, after the English football player). A family member was missing his dearly departed Yorkshire Terrier and asked if I would be willing to paint him on a bottle. This was my first hand-painted pet request and I was really pleased with it. At first, I was a little apprehensive I must admit. Even though I had experimented with hand-painted crafts in the past, this was a whole new ball game! The customer was over the moon with the final result.
Funnily enough, hand-painted pets on bottles and vases are now my best seller!
