Bet he loved this portrait, great detail and I love the leather harness Andrea.

Sorry mean't he will love this portrait (at Christmas!) ;)

Actually I can tell you that he was 'delighted with it' and that it 'had pride of place in the narrow boat', as it was a gift to him a couple of years ago. It was a lovely painting to do as my friend had managed to keep it all a secret, even taking the photos I needed for Ridsy right under her dad's nose! Thank you very much for your compliments Carole.

Just beautiful Andrea.

A lovely piece, the eyes are superbly done, bringing this gorgeous boy to life.

Than you Fiona and Seok for your posts. Glad you like him!

A wonderful portrait of a Jack Russell. Those eyes surely will melt the sternest heart. Brings back thought of my own.

Thank you Siv for your kind post and for your moving comments.

Ridsy lives on a narrowboat and is owned by my best friend's dad. This portrait was commissioned by Helen as a Christmas present for her father.
