My newest painting, the Loyal Companion – Colorful Labrador Retriever Dog, is now available online for purchase as a fine art print and much more in my online stores. This is the first of a series of colorful dog paintings depicting popular dog breeds. Though I already have two dog artworks (French Bulldog and Miniature Schnauzer), those are drawings using pastels. I am taking a break from pastel drawings for now, and focusing on acrylic painting.

The Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. Although they were originally bred as gun dogs, this versatile and intelligent breed also works as guide dogs for the blind, assistance and therapy, bomb detection dogs for the police and military, and as pets. This breed originated in the Newfoundland and Labrador region of Canada. Later, they were imported to Great Britain where they became a different variation. The English and American labs differ in behavior and appearance. English labs tend to be more laid back and easier to train, whereas American labs tend to be more high energy. English labs are larger and have blocky square heads, and the American labs tend to be longer and thinner. There are three main colors of Labrador Retrievers: black, yellow, and chocolate, although other colors exist.
This painting was completed in August of 2018. It depicts a black Labrador Retriever dog in an impressionistic style, using cool colors like green, blue and purple instead of black and grey tones. The background is an abstract mix of yellow, green and blue. This painting was created with acrylic paints on board, and measures 11″ wide by 14″ tall. The original is for sale, if you are interested please Contact Me.
