I love my piano teacher like he's family. Which he practically is, because we've know him and his family forever. He teaches me valuable skills, and without him I don't know where I'd be. He's an artist, and if he had a deviantART page, he'd classify himself as a professional. He appreciates art, and so that's just what I'm going to do.
I plan to draw him his dog, Molly, and somehow incorporate a piano.
What I was thinking was a side/three-quarters view of Molly sitting on the bench in front of his black Grand piano, or perhaps the Upright, since I practice on that one. I was also thinking about doing it from the piano's "point of view," having Molly looking up at you [when you're looking at the drawing, as if she's looking at the music] and the keys kind of at the bottom and barely visible. I don't know what I'll do. I'm just scared to try and actually draw her paws up on the keys. xD
