My friends from college just had to put their dog down. :(
I sent this as a surprise gift.
16"x20" acrylic - painted in two sessions
CC welcome! Thanks

This is beautiful and I am sure will be appreciated by your friends. This must have been a 'charmed' painting because everything looks effortless and just right.

What a kind and thoughtful tribute. Nicely done. I would have eliminated the white area in the lower left though but otherwise a really nice job!

How very sad. This is a wonderful tribute to Buddy where he obviously was a really happy dog. Love the sense of distance and the wilderness feel about this painting Rob. Your friends must have been very touched by this gift.

A very nice tribute. But I do find the white thing in the bottom corner distracting.

It's a lovely painting Rob and I hope this helps them as much as friends' gift paintings of my dog helped me.

Thanks for your comments everyone! They did very much like the painting.
The white spot is a sun glint - which maybe I over-did, but I like it there..
Here is the reference pic
