This was a gift I made for an acquaintance as a sort of thank you for being invited to a super cool event for the last couple years. It is a "portrait" of a favorite dog on the farm. He was a super old doggie when I met Jack, and sadly passed before I finished this project.

When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a picture of a real dog! This is marvellous, and such a nice tribute.

I know this is an older post now but I just have to comment - that's beautiful. I think it really captures both the energy and yet pure devotion of border collies. I'm sure his humans love it!
