Been MIA due to an accident I've had. Haven't done much painting, but here is one I did about 2 months ago. There's no background because the owners like it as is, so I let them have it as is, but really wished I did something... oh well.

Wow, this is amazing. I know dogs who look just like this. You captured the softness of its muzzle, the texture of its fur, and the devotion shining in its eyes. It is truly a beautiful portrait. I hope you have fully recovered from your accident now. I would love to see more of your work when you have time.

It's no wonder this dog's owners are thrilled! I'm sorry about your accident and hope you will be painting more often if you are recovered.

Excellent! It does not need background. Also, if the clients are happy, then you can be too.

Thanks everyone.

Not better yet, seems I more than pulled my back - have to go get an mri, I keep getting burning and numbing pain in my legs ... sigh... oh well.

Thanks again :)
