I painted this yesterday for my Dad's 90th birthday, coming up this month. His old black lab mix, Angus, passed away a few months ago and I thought he'd enjoy a painting of him. I couldn't find an actual photo of him but did a search on the web of photos of old black labs and with some input from my brother as to what he actually looked like, put together this painting. My Dad lives in Florida and me in New Hampshire, so I only have vague recollections of Angus. Plus I hate to fly so I haven't been down there for a while. My dad comes up here to visit every summer, but the dog stays down there. A notice to everyone...take lots of pictures of your pets!!!!!! Some day you may want a portrait of them.
