Nikky was the best little dog a family could hope for. He loved to bark at the doorbell, eat popcorn and sit by grandpa when grand-pa had popcorn. He loved to fetch a toy and not bring it back. He loved to go on walks and sniff every tree, rock and leaf. He loved to lie in his bed and in his kennel and on Dan’s bed and on Sarah’s bed. He liked TV commercials and certain shows on the Animal Planet channel. He loved “treats!” There are a few things – well lots of things – that Nikky did not like. Remote control cars. Sewer grates. Docks and boats. Coffee cups. Wine glasses. Other animals. Babies. He was very jealous! Nikky didn’t like going to the vet or the groomer. Baths were torture. He didn’t like not having his collar on. Things we will miss about Nikky include the clickety-clack of his nails on the kitchen floor. The jingle of his tags. The warm spot at the end of the sofa. Little paw prints part-way up the patio doors. The way he nodded his head with each scoop of dog food put into his dish; as if he were counting. We’ll miss him curled up in the corner of the computer room. His snoring and his unconditional love for his family. Good-bye, buddy. We’ll remember you with love forever.

This is a tiny work of art in the format of an ACEO 3.5" x 2.5" It is painted using India ink, Colored Pencil and some Acrylic
I've included an example below of "Nikky" framed up nicely...isn't he charming?
...and a few shots of Nikky as a WIP (work in progress):
I also redesigned Nikky in a square format, added a sweet border and a few extra stars so that he can be printed on ceramic tiles, jewelry boxes, and tote bags. I'm offering this square format as a 5x5" Giclee print.
