Collies are just beautiful and a delight to paint. These two lived together in Massachusetts, where Mollie (on the right) passed away. I met Skipper and his Dad after they migrated south here to North Carolina. Dad wanted to remember them together, so I worked from his photo to capture a moment in time forever.

He had it framed at my favorite framer...Frame Warehouse in Cary, NC....with my friend who manages the store Sheena McLean. They did a magnificent job framing them with a linen mat, burnished gold filet, AR glass and the perfect wood frame that picked up the warm tones in the trees. I usually don't get to see my commissions framed, so this was a real treat. He was originally going to hang this in the hallway, but instead gave it a place of honor in his living room. Love it!
I've completed another commission.....will tell you about it soon, so stay tuned!
