  3. What a winning dog portrait this is! I love the 'fish-eye' up close perspective on his nose, and his colorful color too. It makes me smile, and gives me that warm feeling we get when we pet a dog!!

  8. You have so captured the heart of Jersey. We had a Greyhound and they are so very sweet. That personality trait just shines through this piece, Suz. A beautiful beautiful piece that just touches my heart.

  11. Oh my - How could they possibly not?
    I love the way you have composed his head - I almost feel as though if I get too close, he might lick my face! And the brightly coloured collar finishes it of beautifully :0)

  18. You just know that Jersey is seriously considering licking the viewer's nose and then nuzzling a bit with that soft wet nose.
    They will love this portrait.

  20. Hi there Suzanne!... If the eyes be "the portals of the soul"... and I believe that they are... then "You" have captured Jersey's essence forever!

    As always... your own keen and sensitive eye gleans what lies without... and your heart takes "you" "within"... and your brush bridges both. Absolutely... stunningly... masterful Suzanne!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
