beyond expression


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.

Love the dog! He looks distinguished and a noble companion to his owners! Just beautiful, I also love the surrounding colors in the landscape!
Have a good week - maybe tea today or tomorrow?
