This is a painting of our doggie. Sadie is a highly spirited border collie lab cross and is always looking for someone to play with or for someone to pay attention to her. She is very expressive and communicates with us quite clearly - Almost always about attention and/or food or food and/or attention!
She is getting on in years now. We think she is about eleven - not sure as she was a rescue dog. Her hair is turning quite white and she has started to slow down some.
This is a mixed watermedia painting on Ampersand Aquabord. This surface is wonderful for painting textures such as fur and hair.
