You had mentioned in a previous blog about your King Charles Spaniel. Sophie has a very sweet expression and her fur looks sooo soft! Great job!

I don't see "naughty" anywhere on that sweet face and gentle eyes:) She must have been hiding that side for her sitting.

no such thing as a naughty puppy, just spoiled ones.

Love this ED!

Edward - What an adorable sweet expression you captured on your King Charles. I feel I could reach out and touch her soft fur. I like how you have just one prominent thin white stroke to indicate fur and all the rest soft. You are a very skilled an talented artist.

She looks so sweet Edward. I'm so happy we have nice animals like these to love and be loved by.

It's a beautiful painting Ed, and I can feel her personality. I like the decision to close in on her face, and the handling of eyes and nose is just right, along with the little bit of soft pink.

Beautiful painting, very expressive and wonderful brushwork. BTW, our family also went vegetarian about 18 years ago... GO Veggies!

a very "dreamy" dog! I love every one of your paintings...but who can resist stopping to comment on this one. Somehow I think this dog is a real great friend~!

A real sweetie indeed, Edward. I am fascinated with dog portraits and this one is cute as a button

This is a truly beautiful painting. Reminds me so much of my Megan, who sadly died a few years ago. Cavaliers are such gentle dogs and you have captured this perfectly in your painting.
