Some new dog and cat portraits

For over thirty years I have been painting people's dogs and cats. Back in the seventies I did a friend's dog and then some of their friends wanted a portrait and so it went - the demand has never stopped. I never tire of painting animals because  each one has a distinct personality and so inspires a different portrait each time - its always a fresh experience from the perspective of an artist. People ask me if I have ever painted any of my own dogs and the answer is "no" only because there isn't enough time in the day, but I couldn't imagine living my life without the love of a dog!
