12x12 acrylic on gallery canvas

This is Copley, my sister and brother-in-law's border terrier. I really wanted to capture his likeness, so I obsessed over it with a minuscule brush.  That didn't help.  The way I had painted him with that tiny brush made him look much older than he looks in real life.  I finally grabbed a bigger brush and put in some brush strokes. It was definitely an improvement.  Now he looks more like the Copley I know.
