I made a call for reference photos to my Facebook friends for a project I'm working on and one of my artist friends, Pattie Wall, provided several great photos of her dogs.  Thanks Pattie!  I plan on using all the reference photos she sent me for paintings, but the one I chose to do first happens to be of  her Weimaraner. When I saw the photo I knew I wanted to paint it.  The lighting was great and the dog just looked elegant to me - hence the name of this piece. 

Philippians 4:19 (King James Version)
19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

I thought your dog was a picture, that's how real it looks like, it's amazing, I look up to you as an artist as well.
