Beautiful work. That has to be the best animal painting I have ever seen. :2tsup:

Correct. He was named after Django Reinhardt. My wife wouldn't let me call him Fender. He is my third shepherd. I painted him from one of about 50 photos. He doesn't stay still long enough to paint him from life. (He hardly stays still long enough to take a photo). His hobbies are chewing up anything made of plastic and landscape gardening. I'll post some more dog paintings when I get them sorted out.

You really know your way around pastels! And, by the look of it, photography, if this is from a photo - the shading is wonderful!
