This is a new dog that likes the great outdoors. The last companion was a similar breed but had passed away recently and there are many people that love to have this kind of companion to share their life...ready always to go when there is an opportunity to be in the outdoors. Crossing a large cottonwood log that had fallen across the river...a convenient place to stay dry while exploring the other side of the river.

Jon, I wish you a wonderful friendship with your new dog. What is his/her name? I am sure this is going to be great . Will be watching with interest. Thanks for sharing.

So nice of you to look after an older dog, which I assume this is. Beautiful start to the painting - looking forward to watching it develop.

Thanks for commenting Chammi...the dog is a request from an acquaintance that her last companion was posted in this same forum as a portrait of her dog which has since passed on. I've had several small postings mailed to me of the new dog but they were all small photos without good detailing. This one seems to be the best of the lot...but still quite small for my detailing 64kb.:crossfingers:

Thanks Yvonne, I'm not sure of the dog's age, but it isn't a pup...don't know the story yet but we've only talked on the net so far.:thumbsup:

This is a start on the cottonwood log which is covered with bits of moss on the water side (bottom). Very thick bark!:clear: :)

The dog was drying out by this time and wasn't sure to ride further or take a leap. Thanks for your comments. :cat:
