Flame

I haven't posted anything in a very long time. But here is a portrait I did of my best friend's Lab, Flame. Flame is a highly titled working dog, a Champion in field work. Portrait is 16 by 20, soft pastels on velour paper. C and C always welcome.

Re: Flame

This is a beautiful portrait of a working dog. I am sure your friend loves it. Perfect background for a field champion, and I particularly like the black nose

Wonderful portrait. Lovely colours on the dogs fur, and the background matches perfectly.

Re: Flame

Thanks! Flame is a phenomenal dog and I have used him in my breeding program several times. His owner is a professional retriever trainer who has trained several of my own retrievers to working titles. LOl It's a fun game.
She was very pleased with this piece.
