AutumnLeaves said...

Oh dear...I am so sad to hear of Monty's passing. He looks like such a little puppy in this portrait! I know this portrait will be so cherised, Dors. It is beautiful and moving.

Another beautiful work Dors. I think the word 'soft' springs to mind ... soft eyes, soft fur, soft expression! Lovely

Dors, I can't keep up with you, you are such a fast worker! I missed the first post on Monty but this is a fabulous finish! I'm not really a doggy person but who can resist this one?!! Great work!

Miniature Art by Karen Hull said...

Oh what a darling little face Dors and once again you have captured the character of this dog so well. The owner will treasure this so much, I'm sure!!!

Sally McLean said...

Monty is georgeous Dors! I am not surprised that the Koala is SOLD either. It is such a stunning artwork and so marketable as an Australian icon!!

Joan Sicignano Artist said...

Oh Dors, how sweet and precious. I love your ability to capture such expression in the eyes. Not to mention softness of the fur. Your are truly gifted.

All the best to you.

Joan

An audible "OOOOH!" came out at the sight of this one. Such a cutie. Little Monty has melted my heart. GREAT job, Dors!

Awwwwww thanks Gwen. I'm so glad you like him.

always your admirer...

Dors said...

jyothisethu. Thank you so much for your kind comment. It's always appreciated.

Barbara A. Freeman said...

Dors, you've captured the sweetness of this little guy.

DEB said...

Dors, I think you probably made this dog look sweeter in your portrait than he does in real life! I bet he's got drool, leftover kibbles in his fur, snot in his nose...He looks cute enough to snuggle with in your rendition!

Dors said...

Thank you so much Barbara I appreciate your comment. :)

Dors said...

Deb. I smiles. you are probably right..LOL glad I rendered him sweet.
Thank you so much for your kind comment. :)
