Cheers guys, she's done a few of my dogs over the years, but this one surprised me. Here's one she did a couple of years back of my collie

Those eyes look even better in this pic trench.
They look like they are made of glass.
I've never seen a painting with eyes like that.
Quality work fairplay.

She finds it to stressful. She done a handful of pictures for other people of their dogs or horses and it makes her a pain in the arse to live with.

I've just noticed that there's a bit of Rodger Decoursey and Nookie Bear going on in the picture with the red background!

Very nice mate get her to do a mural in the back bedroom of the dogs mate 

I've tried painting her back bedroom a few times over the years, but she's not interested!

 

that doesn't sound right mate, or is it just me  :whistling:

Trenchfoot, if your wife done a few commissions you could pay a painter / decorator to paint those rooms for you.

She's very good and seems to have her own style.

I wish, she either does them as presents for friends, or gives them to charities to auction off to help raise funds. Then mithers me to buy her favourites back.  :blink:

Great paintings Trenchfoot. The thing with the eyes, Landseer said that the trick to successful animal painting is to give them human eyes. It isn't a trick, it's a talent, and your misses certainly has it. The collie cur ones I find the most interesting. The 1st one is very commercial. You can see that as a limited edition print in a trendy boutique or as a birthday card. The second one I find superb. Not just perfectly capturing a hound at rest but the colour and texture of the cushion, not easy and again good technique. Thanks for sharing them.
