This is a gorgeous art work and portrait of Maisie and perfect pose as Maisie looks up waiting for that little dog treat. The expression in her face and look in the eye is spectacular and you have captured her personality and brought her to life in this painting. Your beautiful color pallet and brush strokes so beautiful with good blending and shading of color. Your use of light and shadows is excellent. Congratulations on your well deserved win. Excellent composition! Thanks for sharing. I love this one!

a fantastic pose and great entry to this contest; we had a boxer that we lost after a long illness more than 30 years ago; they are the sweetest dogs;

Such a nice painting of a boxer! The background is lovely and sets off his face nicely. Such fine detail on his face. The collar looks real and I can see all his hairs on his body! Excellent work and good luck in contest!

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Very realistic creation with fantabulous fine facial features & smooth fur textures despite the low lit capture...
Maybe we can enhance brightness a bit...

Great pose!
Verdant backdrop looks refreshing.
Thanks for sharing...

I love Boxers, and she is a stunner. Great capture of the pose, and excellent use of colour. I think a little more light around the sky area would enhance it, but you still get five stars.

Wow this is a really talented art work! Great colors and harmony with awesome details! Pleasant highlights and shadows. Wonderful initial and visual impact. Very nice center of interest and story telling ability. Amazing to think it only took you 8 hours to complete it! Great techniques and high technical excellence. A true winner and wonderful piece to view. Thanks for sharing!
