A little bit of everything.
Which one is Jughead??? LOLOL So sorry; I just had to say it. It is a gorgeous painting, Carol, and I know your friend will be over the moon. Great job on the young man's hair and the look in the dog's eyes definitely one I've seen before.
This is a wonderful painting which I know will bring many happy memories to the family.I admire the way you painted the young man's hair - looking like it has air dried after a swim. I lol at Sherry's comment too.
Great painting, Carol!! Love the way you painted his back...very realistic and yet painterly. The look on the dog's face is priceless...they will love this piece!!!
