Fantastic work. Beautiful dog. Love the colors and the effect. You should print it out really big and hang it on the wall.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I am working on perfecting this technique of creating images that look like chalk drawings on colored paper.
This image was printed as 16X20 on Arches Infinity Rough, which was the only paper that could faithfully hold the subtle tonal shifts in the background and in the dog's ear.

nice job, very Norman Rockwellish. Best I've seen emulating that artist.

Thank You, thank you! I have had some of my work described as Norman Rockwellish but I never thought of this piece that way. I really appeciate the honest comments and encouragement.
