This lovely old boy is"Thumper" an elderly Great Dane I had the pleasure of painting. Some of my clients ask me to make their dogs look younger but I always try to persuade them to have them painted "warts and all." Old age isn't a disease it's part of the life cycle of a dog that most dogs handle very well. I just love painting them. What do you think?

I think he has much more personality in that face, than when he was young. You are right.

What do I think? I think you are absolutely correct. Thumper looks like a dignified gentleman with plenty of life experience in his eyes. He is beautiful!

Beautiful capture of the elegance and grace of a senior dog, Clive. Love the personality your painting shows.

He's beautiful. We have a 13 year-old dog who is rapidly coming to the end of his days and we love to see him perk up his ears; as if they are defying his old white face.
