Biffa is just excellent, Ray! Beautifully rendered fur, eyes, nose and his expression is so natural! This one is for framing and hanging where everyone can see it. . . . . congratulations! :clap: :clap:

I LOVE IT! He looks so soft and I want to just squeeze him. When I was a kid our family raised boxers. So they have a spot in my heart. Great job!

I really must point out that Ray is not only a great artist but also a very kind and compassionate man. He PMed me with an offer to gift his drawing to my daughter because of her loss.
I respectfully declined as I had already painted her Boxer. My painting is not nearly as good as Ray's drawing but it is specifically her Boxer.
Ray requested to see my painting so here it is Ray

Well, I think both Alan and Ray are two fine men - sweet guys.

Alan, I am sure that your daughter loves the painting of Bogart that you made for her.

Touching story!
