Jeanne, This painting of Sam is delightful. The soft handling of the his fur is spot on and his little cocked head and perky expression are captivating. Very well done!

Thank you so much for your lovely compliments! I can see why this beautiful breed is called "Silky" because of all that super fine, soft hair! Lots to paint! Plus Sam's original photo had his eyes completely blocked out from the flash, so I had to imagine how they would be. Guess I couldn't go wrong with such a charmingly beautiful subject as Sam! Thank you! Jeanne
