I discovered stunning dog portraits by brilliant artist, Kim Parkhurst on etsy while I was in Scotland. In a search to find some form of comfort after watching the last episode of Downton Abbey's third season, I stumbled on these gorgeous paintings that combine 3 of my favourite things: dogs, vintage clothing, and most importantly, Downton Abbey. I only wish I had come up with this genius idea first! But, I'm so impressed with the detail. I can only aspire to become as good as Kim Parkhurst.
And, as I'm still suffering bouts of withdrawals, I thought I'd share these with you to cheer up my fellow Downton addicts. Only 5 more months to go, loves!

I really should send her a request to paint my favourite characters: Lord Grantham and Branson ;)
