"Sam", the Rescue Dog (Cocker Spaniel x Golden Retriever Mix)

Samantha is a 6 year old cocker spaniel/golden retriever mix. We have no idea what she was doing in a South Carolina shelter, but she became a part of our family a year ago this month, and we got very lucky. She's incredibly sweet.

Anyway, Sam's portrait was today's project -- and since I go to Rae's class each week with a very limited set, it results in some odd color choices. Of necessity, I shoot for value over color.  And while she isn't this purple(!), I captured her essence and I'm happy with the result.

PS - If you know someone who'd love a pet portrait, I love doing them. Feel free to get in touch!
