Sleeping Beauty by mli13 Sleeping Beauty by mli13
This commission was a portrait depicting one of the client's daughters as Sleeping Beauty complete with a cameo from the family dog!

I've re-uploaded this piece to show a closer representation of the colours of the original piece. As you can tell, the colours on this one are pretty washed out. You can see the newer upload here ...

I think this piece of art made me smile more then others because the dog is a spitting image of our old yellow lab Sam, who passed away last year. [link]

Awww I'm really glad it made you smile, especially as I know what it's like to lose a pet that's more like a friend. Sam looks adorable in that photo by the way! Thanks for sharing.
