this group of paintings were the final pieces I had to submit for my Pet Portraiture Diploma. A big thanks you to Mary Gray for the loan of her fantastic photos. You be pleased to know I passed with Distinctions.
Barney holds a special place in my heart and is still one of my favourite pictures. He has pride of place on my business cards. A reminder of days gone by when my children were small and played ball with him in a friends garden.
This painting almost never happened. It was painted as a gift for a special landmark birthday. Unfortunately Cleo, on the left, passed away a few days after the photographs for this picture were taken. RIP old girl.
