14x11 Oil on Linen

"Abby" is a beautiful greyhound.  You may notice the scars, on on her face, and two in her chest area.  Her owners especially wanted those racing scars included in the portrait.  Abby has such beautiful eyes and a winning smile!

What a beautiful animal. Such gentle eyes. I bet it was a pleasure painting her. I have to ask though... Was it hard painting the scars knowing what caused them? It hurts thinking about it because she looks so sweet.

The pleasure was in how much the owner (a friend of mine) loved Abby. He insisted that I include the scars as identifying marks. I can't imagine having my sweet puppy involved in something that would leave scars, so now that you mention it, it does hurt.
