A painting

I was recently commissioned to do a painting of a dog named Sydney.

Here is the finished pet painting commemorating Sydney

who today resides in "Doggie Heaven"

but shall live on in this small


I tried to capture that cute smile that he has in the photo above.
Hope I did so.

acrylic on canvas

PS Sydney's parents missed his companionship,
and now they have "Rufus"
and you can meet him here.

Enjoy your weekend!

You did a beautiful job on this painting, Donna. Somehow I think Sydney is wearing that same smile in heaven.
