I painted this for our daughter who LOVES our Golden Retriever Farley and enjoys dressing him up. Our daughter is an adult but sometimes they never grow up (this refers to our dog too). Just for fun I thought I would show the steps that led up to the finished painting (see the bottom photo).
Two new paintings of Farley – one when he was a puppy and one as an adult with his favourite toys – felted balls. He is always so proud when he gets two in his mouth together.
Farley is our 2 year old Golden Retriever who is generally wild and goofy – but also very intelligent. This painting captures him in a quiet, thoughtful moment – probably while he is contemplating stealing a sock from the laundry hamper.
