So we emailed back and forth a bit, and they sent a pic to try. It's a good photo, but not the best pet portrait photo as the angle is looking down from above the dog's head. But, nevertheless, it was an interesting photo. And the only beagle photo that she had handy.
Here's the finished painting. 5x7 inches, varnished watercolor on Yupo. I'll list it for sale for one of the dog charities, probably Old Dog Haven. OldDogHaven.org
