This painting of Gracie is so well done.  Nice fur, eyes, ears.

Look closely at the spot to the right of the nose.  Check it with the reference photo.  I think yours needs to be lightened in value.

Otherwise, WOW.


A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

Tweak the nose, and you have a winner.  Your friend will be very glad with this painting.  Great job.
