PET PORTRAITS BY TRUDIE SCHUYLER BARRERAS
Trudie has begun a major project of doing pet portraits for various friends, and also as "donation incentives" for charities such as churches and animal care organizations. These are primarily done in pastel, in size suitable for framing in 8 x 10 format. Anyone interested in inquiring in more detail about this project should contact Trudie at firstname.lastname@example.org

Trudie decided to attempt a new departure with pet portraits by painting them on muslin fabric using acrylics. Each portrait is 12" x 12". Ray assembled them into the quilt, and quilting was done by both Ray and Trudie. The portraits are of Sharon Morgan's dogs, and the quilt is in her collection. It was completed in January of 2009.
