Portrait for my best friend. She lost George late last year and misses him still. He was 15!

Any suggestions? I tried to capture his "george-ness"

I think it is just fine. Your friend will be so pleased with it. We just got a little 1 yo beagle named Tilly & I can't imagine what we did without her.

Thank you! You are all very kind.

If my friend doesn't like it, I can show her this thread and tell her "gee, everyone else does!" ;)

A wonderful tribute. I am sure that your friend will be very pleased. I know I would be.

My son's name is George and he often gets just this look in his eyes... :D

There is not a doubt in my mind that she will LOVE IT!!!! First of all because it is her doggie and secondly because it is a fabulous painting!!!!
