Last Christmas I painted the first dog below for my son-in-law. HeiDo was his K-9 until the dog was retired, now he is a family pet. The second painting, now also a year later is of HeiDo also, I am going to donate this painting to the sheriff's department and will continue to paint the K-9s as they retire from service. It is my way to say thankyou for their service.

I struggled with the 2nd painting, not sure I really like it, had trouble with the background. So, please if you see something let me know...

2nd painting- 9 by 12 Art spectrum colorfix-Sand with soft pastels
I'll post again when my husband has it matted, the colors with be of the blue and grey, will look really nice.
thanks for looking

Piper that is a very good thing that you are doing! I know the sheriff's department is going to love it! Do you have a reference picture that we could see? Your paintings are very lovely!

Jody :D

Thanks Jody....I will post the reference tonight. The right ear on the 2nd painting is way to pointy, at least that is easy to fix.
