That is so pretty!  I'm sure she absolutely adores it!  What a great homage to a beloved pet!

Let me tell you I burst into tears when I opened the box.  Jenna lost a leg to bone cancer right before Christmas and is going in to have tumors removed from her belly this morning and yet still got our sheep up for feeding at daybreak.  She's all heart.  This captures her perfectly.  You absolutely are a painter, Racky.  Actually, you're my favorite painter!  I will cherish it forever.  Thank you again.

This is gorgeous and awesome!!! I would love something like this to have in memory of my dog that passed away in January... This is just so pretty even if it wasnt their dog specifically but even more amazing that you made it personalized as their dog. You have serious painting skills! LOVE IT

Trying to get back into the swing of things. Trying to move forward and make big changes in my life come join me on my journey if you like!

You rock, rackycoo!!!   Cheesy

Thanks! I don't consider myself a painter, so I was really pleased at how it turned out.
WHY???  You most certainly deserve the title "painter extraordinaire"!  This is just great!
