Cameron usually works in oils or acrylics but also enjoys watercolor-mixed media for smaller head studies. This week’s cover, The Biscuit Apron, is an 18″ x 24″ acrylic on canvas of Mill Creek Hunt (Ill.) junior whip Emily Gray exercising the hounds on the huntsman’s day off.

“The hound looking up at Emily is Bella, whom the Gray family whelped as a puppy,” said Cameron.

Cameron, Racine, Wis., began a series of foxhunting paintings, including this one, in between commissions. She’s entered several in the 2007 Masters of Foxhounds Association Centennial art exhibit being organized by Cross Gate Gallery of Lexington, Ky.
