My St. Bernard Hannah passed last wednesday. She had been sick with Cancer for a long long time. She finally had enough and took her last breath. I am so heart sick over this. She was my baby, never having kids of my own. I had her for a wonderful 13 years! I painted this picture for her. I know it's not a doggy picture. It's what she would have looked like had she been human. A Beautiful Woman. Please comment or critique.
(The background is gray with the purple tones in it. Not all purple like the camera picked up)

We had our dog for 17yrs before he had a stroke, but this was a long time ago and my husband did not want another.

I am so sorry to hear about Hannah’s passing.  Here’s a big hug for you. :1hug:   I also lost a dog to cancer and know how hard it is to watch them go through it.


Your painting of Hannah is amazing.  I can see the love in her eyes.   :smitten:  What a lovely tribute to her.

As a human, she is a lovely dog... or do I mean it the other way round?  :'(Your painting expresses the love and regard you felt for her beautifully. The eyes are so expressive. :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:
Theresa M... we lost a dog at age 17, to cancer too. And have not been able to replace him. But I borrow/babysit one from time to time, which helps fill the gap a little.
