I especially love when a commission is ordered as a gift. What a sweet way to commemorate one's companion with the gift of art. I added a bit of white to the left eye but failed to take a scan before I sent this work off to my client. I just love this sweet dog's expression.
Speaking of gifts, I am beyond expression and full of thanks, a reader sent me an e-mail telling me that my blog is now a "blogs of note" by blogger. Thank-you blogger. I am smiling from ear to ear.
