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.
