Sweet Zeb

"Zeb ( see all proofs)
© rebecca collins /

This is Zeb. He is a sweet Shar Pei that recently passed over to the rainbow bridge. This is a project for a client that had us do some artwork of another Shar Pei named Vanity back in 08.  You may recall Vanity from our client gallery where we have a nice home shot of Vanity admiring Vanity.

About this artwork:
The client asked for a green ground that would blend well with Vanity's artwork. I have sampled the client with many shades of olive green and a few surprises as well.  The pattern sample above is brand new and I love that background however I do not like it at all with Zeb, because it is a bit busy and Zeb looks like he is meditating here ... the crazy zig-zag pattern sort of spoils the peaceful mood. I went ahead and kept it in the mix because it may actually be fun for a 2nd project we have going for Zeb's sister Penny ... a high energy Jack Russell.

It makes me so sad to know Zeb is gone, despite the fact that I know he will never be forgotten. I love both of these pieces, Rebecca.
