You have created a very good and adorable looking pet portrait artwork. Maisie appears so friendly and readily anticipating my giving Maisie a tasty treat or a pat on the head.

Neil, I know very little about art, but even I can tell that this is a beautiful painting.
I have no concept of the patience it must take to get all that detail. And such lovely eyes and wonderful expression.

A nice perspective with very good eye contact. The upturned face and imploring expression on her face is very good. Nice details in the fur and great colors.

Cool,Nril!
These things are very popular little dogs and your portrait of this one is a lot of fun to look at!
It makes for a really 'Good Show' of a picture!

How adorable!! I love the color of the background that really shows off the colors of the dog. His eyes are so pretty. My daughter has a shih tzu and they are the sweetest dogs. This guy looks like he is pretty special to you.

Nice technique in the fur. Good proportions.
A little guy with fluffy white fur and tiny little feet.
I'm sure Maisies owners are or will be pleased with this portrait of their beloved dog.
The reason for my rating is because I think his eyes look mean and unloving.
I don't feel the soft hearted soul.
The eyes are the windows of the soul.
Just my opinion. Overall good effort.

This is a lovely portrait of this cute little fluffy dog! I love the expression on her face. She's looking right at you. The brush strokes you used to paint her fur are wonderful.
