German Shorthaired Pointer by Lake

Well, as you might notice, I'm listing these recent paintings alphabetically rather than chronologically -- but again, they all were done within a two- to three-week period up to the present. 

I really enjoyed doing this painting.  It was a bit difficult for me, but I think it came out pretty well.  I love shorthaired dogs, especially to paint them, because you can see their body shape so extremely well.  German shorthaired pointers are especially beautiful, and it seems that every one is different from any others.  I had a magnificent best friend up until just a few years ago, named Dune, who was part GSP and part greyhound - what a beauty!  And what a wonderful, wonderful dog and friend.  I'll miss him forever.
