This painting was created with acrylic paints on board, and measures 11″ wide by 14″ tall. Photo reference from Pixabay.

Golden retrievers are among the most popular dog breeds. Originally bred as gun dogs, this friendly and intelligent breed also serve as guide dogs, assistance and therapy, search and rescue, as well as popular pets. Their long fur is dense and water repellent, and comes in a whole range of yellow colors, from very pale yellow to dark golden, and can even have a reddish mahogany tint to their fur. Golden retrievers originated in Scotland in the 19th century. There are three subtypes of Golden: American, Canadian, and British. They differ in appearance, with the British type being more stocky than the American type. The Canadian type tends to have darker and thinner hair.

The original painting is for sale. If you are interested please Contact Me.
