Love in your Eyes by SilentImagery Love in your Eyes by SilentImagery
So, for my hundreth deviation, I decided this piece deserved to be in that position.

This is my adorable dog and brother, Benfica. He passed away early December from a sickness at ten years old. I miss him dearly, the house is too quiet without him.

Uh, this is originally a gift for my sister for Christmas. For her birthday, she said what she wanted is something she couldn't have. And that was to have our dog back. So, Cindy, this was the best I could do!

Love you Muffin! <3 Drawing you was like reliving the past...

Looks like my good ol' friend who passed away in 2008. I look into this dog's eyes and I see my friend and start to cry. It's beautiful, very beautiful. Happy Holidays.

you definitely know a Lab's love. You caught it so beautifully in the eyes. It's never easy to lose one. My first one made it to 14.5 years. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him dearly.

Yeah, it's been about 9 months since he passed away. I just miss having a dog more and more. Thank you for your compliments.

This is utterly flawless. The colour in his eyes really highlights the love that dogs share with their family (hence the title you gave the art piece). I found myself tearing up while reading your comments, I find it hard to remember life before I had a dog. So sorry for your family's loss, such a lovely thing to do for your sister.

Thank you very much. Some days I would love to have a dog again, but I would never want to replace him. It's been a lot easier nowadays.
