SPECIAL CREATURES

Though I seldom choose to paint commissions, the time spent painting this beautiful dog was special. Lynne commissioned me to paint it for her daughter, and there was no way I could say 'no,' especially after seeing the great photo choices that she provided. Painting animals is always fun for me. Thanks, Lynne, for asking me to paint this and for the excellent photography to work from.

Beautiful painting, Sandy! And your previous painting was so lovely and somewhat haunting (maybe it was her eyes).

What a beautiful portrait. You've portrayed him with such a warm look in his eyes, I just want to give him a big hug.
