This was a commissioned portrait from my neighbor. It's of her Grand Doggie named Hank. Her son's birthday is next month and she wanted to give this to him. Hank's a Ridgeback. It was kind of hard drawing this one because they think that this might be his last year and he's a really sweet dog. He's around 13 year old. Even though I've never met Hank, something tells me he must be very sweet. I'm going to be dropping it off next door soon and I wanted to hold onto it for just a little while longer. I think this one turned out to be one of my favorites for some reason. I want to send some positive thoughts out to Hank and his family.

Thank you so much! I know it does have the "want to touch it" quality. I try to go for that in my portraits too.
