I'll confess that I've never been much of a 'dog art' fan, but I must say that I've been enjoying your latest series very much Liza! this painting and 'Walter' in particular are pretty darn cool.

Jason, thanks for your "cool" comment! To be honest, I never really felt like painting dogs, because I'm neither a "dog art" fan, but somebody gave me a commission to paint their dog and it turned out that I enjoyed it very much. So I had a go at it and am quite pleased myself.

I had the same exact thought. These dog paintings are great, even though I normally don't like dog portraits much. Sandra Flood also has some beautiful ones on her website. Some of these remind me of hers.

I'm so sorry for replying this late, Dani - I nearly forgot about it. Although I do appreciate comments very much, of course, it's sometimes a bit difficult finding enough time to answer them all. Anyway, thanks a lot, and I'm thrilled that you are reminded of Sandra Floods paintings, because I adore her work!
