miracle by Beverley Harris

miracle

Miracle was a dog that was saved from the illegal dog meat trade in Vietnam. he was snatched from the streets of Thailand put into a cage on a truck with hundreds of other dogs to make the journey to Thailand to be slaughtered in the most horrific way. luckily he was rescued on the way by soi dog foundation. they thought he was dead. the photo they took of him hanging out of the cage lifeless was posted on the internet. eventually after months of healing he was adopted by a lady called Amanda leask in Scotland, He went on to win the lifetime friend award at crufts for the special bond that he formed with Amanda's autistic son.I have done this portrait for them.

If you have a certain style (bling) do you think it's good to showcase your other work or stay with what you are associated?

Is this the year to try monkeys (and apes?)? Have I captured the look and age of this Orang?
