‘The Look!’


Glad he found a good temporary home with you - how lucky was he. Anyway, this is a great pastel and those eyes are really good

Speaks a thousand words Chandra. I’m glad all ended well with the lurcher, it’s good to have a satisfactory ending.

Shocking story, with a happy ending. Lovely pastel portrait, Chandra.

Lovely features and pointed jaw features for this sweet dog, his gaze is mesmerizing with those brown eyes, and glad he recovered and found a new home. This is an outstanding pastel drawing Chandra!

Thank you so much, Heather, Fiona, Katy and Angela! A Happy New Year to you! Yes, I love a happy ending too!

Something a bit different from me to start the New Year! Sometimes life is stranger than fiction ..shortly after I finished this portrait, someone knocked on our door to say they had just hit a Lurcher on the road....could we take it in because they had a job to get to! Human nature just baffles me sometimes! We think it was probably a dog used in Hare coursing. He was such a sweet dog, wished we could have kept him, but as we already had a dog, he was rehomed after an op to mend a broken shoulder.
