When I saw that the Challenge this week was to paint your dog with his favorite toy, I was delighted. I love painting Monte and have done it many times. I will probably paint him again many more times. One interesting feature he has is his one blue eye. I have to be careful not to make it too blue or it will overpower his face and ruin its beauty. The concentration you see in his face is for real. When he is involved in sports, he is very focused.
