    I was going to put "Finished!!!" in the title, but then notice a couple of other things that needed tweaking, lol.

    Here she is so far: Any suggestions?

    SAweeet!!!!!

    YOu would laugh when i take things back to put on the shelf for the final firing and set it down I almost always see somewhere that needs something so I end up making at least one if not more trips back to work on it some more.

    I love your work.

    I think it look fantastic! You have such a great style. Her ear might need some tweaking to make it stand out a little more, but that's about the only thing I can see.

    I'm impressed! I couldn't paint anything that even resembled a dog if my life depended on it lol. Really good work.

    WOW, that is gorgeous!

    I like the low contrast on the dog itself, really makes it stand out. You've perfectly captured that unique, elegant shape that sighthounds have. I'm blown away.

    It is lovely. The only suggestion I can think of is that the blue background might need a little dark blue texturing in it. Like some fillagree work or something like that.

    Oh man thank you so much guys! I just sent it off today, so I really hope she likes it. I made it as a surprise and she doesn't know it's coming, ha ha.

    Her ear got tweaked some, and I tidied up some borders a bit. Allie I really like the idea of dark blue filigree, but I got so burnt out on painting it I was afraid I would ruin it if I tried anything else major, lol. Definitely something to remember for a future project.

    Next major painting I want to do a fila with some cattle and vacqueros.

    I Think it was busy enough...the right kind of busy. I like pattern on top of pattern too but imo this piece didn't need it. I am sure she will be thrilled.

    Oh my goodness, just got an e-mail from her. I mailed it out yesterday but wasn't expecting it to get there so soon. She was thrilled. This dog passed away last month which is why I was doing the portrait.

    The painting is excellent. Is that Briana?

    Nevermind--just checked the website. She seems very touched. You did a wonderful job--on many levels.
