Jeff



This is Jeff, our oldest granddog. Jeff is quite an old guy, now. He leaves horseplay and nonsense to the other dogs - Jeff's idea of a good time is napping in a warm and cozy spot.

Super likeness. I can just see him shivering.

We have an older dog too so I relate to what you said.
The eyes and colors are terrific and I love the blue bounce on the nose

Lisa - I felt cold the whole time I was painting him. I think adding some blankets to the painting will warm us up.

Thank you, Julie. Jeff is such a sweet old guy. I felt like I was doing a "paint by numbers" painting because there are so many colors in his coat.

Great captured the unique serenity and wisdom of old animals. Beautiful moody tone of this painting.

Thank you, Maga! Jeff has a favorite green blanket that I'm going to try to add to this painting. It will be an experiment because I've never tried to add to a painting before.
