Julia, your work just gets better and better! This one takes my breath away it is so beautiful, so sweet and so sympathetic to the dog. The flowers are a wonderful addition as the image is of a puppy frolicking in a meadow and stopping to look at something with that wonderfully innocent and inquisitive looks that only puppies can give. Brilliant.

The markings and expression on Jake's face are excellent. Agree with Thea, your work gets better and better Julia.

your work is so good i love it.i agree with thea also

A super pastel and what an exprerssion. Brilliant.

Julia, this is just darling! It's such a lively and lovely portrait, and the flowers are a wonderful touch. I just love the expression, and who could resist the eyes?!

Great painting of your dog, you have captured his expression so well.

Such lovely comments - thank you all so much.

Oh Julia, this is adorable. The expression of worry and wonder of the dog is brilliant. So unusual to add a few flowers, it is soooo good!

This is truly a beautiful portrait of jake..features as well as the expression are brilliantly done..It is very, very good.

Hang on Studio Wall

A lurcher we had when he was a puppy - the most wonderful ears!!! Not sure whether I should have put the flowers in but he was considering how tasty they would be?
