I ran across this piece when I was going through some photos on a digital memory card. I'd almost forgotten I'd done this commissioned work almost two years ago. The dog is a female beagle(ish) breed and at that time was recovering from a severe attack by another dog (she came through with flying colors!). The people wanted to have a portrait done of her as a symbol of how much she means to them!
Sorry the photo's a little blurry...I could blame my camera at that time, but I have a feeling it was me!
