These puppies belong to our vet. She has been so good to us with our own two, i thought it would be nice to do a painting for her. She gave me a black and white photo to work from and also a couple of others to get the colours. At first i was not sure how to deal with the little black guy as he was mostly in shadow and hard to see. This one and the previous one, "On High Alert" are going to her on Monday. Commissions are always a tad bit challenging as you never know if they will work out. Watercolor on Arches cold pressed paper. 16" X 22".


  1. To see the reproduction in color is simply magical! It is always stressful, at least for me with commissions..for the fear of judgement. It is a beautiful piece with a unique style and I am sure the receiver will be happy!

  2. Thank you Padmaja for visiting and for your encouraging words. Always a delight to see you stop by. Cheers!

  3. Absolutely darling Ross and you did a great job with the little black guy. Wonderful and it will be well-loved forever.
