I did this over the weekend... This is on a 16"x16" canvas. I tried something a little different for the background I hope they like the splattered paint background?!?

Wow, the dog looks so realistic. I like the new splattered background. Makes the painting dynamic as if the dog is just about to jump and greet its master.

John, I agree with Gita - your background gives life to the picture and makes that beautiful dog so alive.  Great work.  :clap: :clap:

I think the painting has much more life than the photo, and your background and the halo effect really enhance the black of the dog.

Sounds like a "happy ever after" ending, John.  Good for you.
