    Congratulations!!! on being featured Its so easy to see why, well deserved. Love the details of his eyes!!
  • Thanks Chris! He is an adorable dog (belonging to my son) and he was rescued by the RSPCA after being mistreated and he was doomed to die! Took awhile to gain his confidence. How can people be so mean to such gorgeous creatures? The painting has been sold as cards to raise money for the RSPCA.
