Occasionally I paint animals. The inspiration for these two paintings was 'Molly' our 9 year old black lab who loves to ride in the bow of our motor boat going back and forth from our island cottage in Haliburton ( a cottage area in Ontario). The inspiration for the pose came from this photo (or one like it).
As for depicting her red - well Molly, who is a wonderful dog, has a lot of 'attitude', so the colour seemed appropriate.
And here are a few other dog portraits I have done....
My other favourite model is our daughter. But I will show you those paintings another day.
