Maggie May is a mixed breed: Chihuahuanese
This is Princess Margaret of eLand LeKtel. As the official portraiture artist for her Highness I am generally required to paint regal and elegant photos of her Sweetness. However, I caught her one day resting and looking so relaxed and comfortable I could not resist. So I painted her thusly.
The jewel encrusted collar she wears was a gift from her beloved Penascus and is made from the most rare Rubydiam-Emeronyx crystals that are only found on the far planet Genesica. He traveled there himself and mined for many weeks before he was able to find them ..
Once found he had them cut meticulously into just the perfect shape and had them smoothed and buffed into brillance.
Having them set and prepared for this collar in secret was a difficult task because there are many who would foil Penascus in his pursuit of his love for the Princess.
More on this later. . .
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did creating it.
