This is what I worked on yesterday. Brandy was my aunt's little companion. Sadly, Brandy is no longer with us. But my aunt had Brandy for a very long time and I know she was very devoted to her little companion. I hope I have captured Brandy well enough with my drawing. I will be sending her off to my aunt soon as a surprise. And no, I'm not at all worried about her seeing the drawing here first as I am sure my aunt has no use for computers or the internet.

This is stunningly beautiful! I am sure not just your aunt will be happy after seeing(and getting) this, anyone who sees this would be absolutely delighted as well! :)
I've learned from long ago that giving away something you've drawn for that special someone is probably the best gift ever.
Another thing Ann, you truly are a master of graphite drawing!

Ann said...

Thanks everyone!
Alex, I was channeling your skills with graphite - could you tell? :-)

Brandy looks like she could walk right off the page into your aunt's lap. She will be thrilled at your work.

Beautiful portrait. I had to come see as I have a Brandy of my own who is literally the color of brandy. You did a wonderful job on this.

Beautiful and heart felt. She will love it!

Your Aunt will treasure both this beautifully done portrait, and the love that created it. You captured the essence of Terrier in expression and coat. Wow.

Ann, this is such a sweet picture. I was reading our Pet Tales from The Denver Dumb Friends League, and it had photos of so many pets adopted and so many that are gone now. What beauty animals bring to our lives.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments!

Aww, how sad.... But that is so sweet of you to make a gift for your aunt! The dog looks like he/she was a friendly pet.
