Pet Drawing of Miller

Here’s the original. I’ll crop it down to focus on Miller’s “smile” and lighten the shadows on the left side of the photo to bring out his eye.

For Christmas, we received a portrait of our little jack russell, Miller who recently passed. Our daughter commissioned you for it. I understand that you put her order in front of many others to complete it on time. We would like to express our gratitude and to compliment you on such a beautiful job. You managed to capture his essence, and it will be a portrait that will be cherished forever. We miss the little guy very much, and the portrait was a deeply meaningful gift to receive Christmas morning. Thank you so much. You truly have a gift.
