Love this! You have an intriguing way of capturing the personality of this doggie--all your animals. That takes a special talent. Maybe both a love for animals and great artistry. You've managed to do with bigger brush gestures instead of fine details, and I love that about this. My bestfriend did animal portraits for a long time and she was able to do this to. I have a ton of her work and your work has a similar preciousness.
