National Dog Day

On Saturday 26 August, it is National Dog Day – celebrating our canine friends all over the world.  With that in mind, here is a collection of a few of my paintings of pooches who are awaiting their forever homes… or walls!  A mixture of breeds and all lovely characters who make, or have made, our lives just that bit more fun.


I spotted this hunk of loveliness while touring around the East coast of Scotland yesterday.  He looked a bit Churchillian, as though he was about to start addressing a crowd, so I took a snap as reference material for a future painting, but couldn’t resist sharing him with everyone first.  I hope he’s called ‘Winston’.
