  1. he turned out very handsomely!! love it :)

  2. What a lovely job you've made of Eddy. it was great following your progress. Really beautiful painting Pat.xx

  3. I just love it! What a gorgeous dog!! I am curious as to why you went with chocolate spots instead of black or charcoal? I LOVE it, just curious. I think this is my favorite by far. But again, my favorite childhood lovie was a dalmatian so I'm biased ;)

  4. thanks, JB xx

    Kerin, Eddy had brown spots! If you click on the original photo, it comes up larger and you will see.. probably the clearest on his ears.
    They are rare - and are called "liver" dalmatians. I'm glad you love him, he was a very special dog xx

  5. Ahhh, such a cute likeness. Look at the intensity in his face expecting that treat or whatever he's looking at. What a handsome young man!

  6. So unususl to have a Dalmetion dog with liver coloured spots and you;ve really caught his character Pat. It's great!

  7. Great work Pat. Love Eddy. He looks so regal.

  8. Hi guys,

    I'm the lucky one who got to spend Eddy's last 4 years with him. Believe it or not, in the original photo Eddy was nearly 13!

    He was indeed a very beautiful dog and a purer soul you just couldn't meet. He died aged 15 years and 4 months and left such a huge hole in our lives.
    Pat has captured him beautifully and I am so grateful to her for her kindness and generosity with this beautiful gift.

    Eddy lives on in all of us, myself, my mum who was very close to him and 'his girls' Takara (another liver dalmatian) aged 5 and Bubble (black spotted dally) who's almost a year.

    Anybody who met Eddy fell in love with him and his owner who reluctantly gave him up when he was 11 and a half, cried when she heard the news that he'd passed on.

    He is one dog you could never forget.
