My Best Friend

"My Best Friend" 5 by 7, Pastel Painting
This Golden Retriever was so much fun to paint. I have never painted a dog before so I was scared to even attempt it. But I think it turned out pretty well. It's really pretty silly that I'm afraid to paint animals because I'm a big animal lover. I have two dogs who I treat like they were my children. I love, love, love animals. So, I think I might start painting more of them.
This dog is painted on pastelbord, with pastel pencils and pastel sticks.

Beautifully done. You've captured so much of the Golden Retriever's personality: warmth, wisdom, playfulness, and just a hint of mischief.
