“You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.”
~Robert Louis Stevenson

Painted in Twisted Brush from an early vintage postcard, depicting a dog saving little Grace from near drowning. The original background was removed leaving just the dog, child, and rock pier. Composed in Photoshop with layers, effects, filters, background and textures.

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
~Mark Twain
