Great portrait! You've directed me right to the focal point with the eye and red collar. Your brush work is so beautiful!

This is so good. Thank you for the fresh air. I wish i could send it to the million people who paint overworked local color pet portraits and say, "Go see Vaughan. This is how you should paint them." I love the confident succinct brushstrokes and just enough details to let the viewer get involved and finished what's only suggested at. Isn't that what we want? The get involved with our pets?
