Evening Gold - Golden Retriever in the snow

Evening Gold - 7" x 5" oil on hardboard/masonite

My good friend, Lisa Husar of took this lovely photograph of a golden retriever caught in the rays of the dying sun, while he, with his thick coat, enjoys the snow. Lisa is a professional wildlife photographer who takes stunning photographs of many species of wild animals and birds but here she has used her own dog, Bear, as her model.

I loved working on this painting with its feeling of great peace and calm and Bear looks so handsome and regal - the epitome of how a golden retriever should look - although I happen to know he is often more playful than regal!


This painting is straight off the easel and will need to dry for several days before it can be shipped.
