Note: When I first published this one, I saw that the greenish gray background on my blog was really affecting the way the colors looked, so I decided to add a white frame to the blog photo; now the colors look more true to the original painting.

I think this one is finished.
I’ll let it be for a couple of days before I sign it, because I can’t decide if it’s really finished or if I’m just anxious to get started on my next one, which will be another of my Neighborhood Watch series ... this one featuring Blue gazing out the window.
I finally got a good reference photo after several like this:
Seems Blue was much more interested in what I was doing with the camera than what might be going on out in the front yard.
