A universal pawprint and a new friend!

Two new paintings to show you in this post.
These were created for the man who runs our dog training classes, on the occasion of his 65th birthday.

He's been so helpful with making my OH feel comfortable - because trainer had also suffered bullying at work and ended up with work related depression. Having overcome his, he is sympathetic to helping my OH.
It's sad that someone else has been through the same awful experience, but helpful for my OH to see that you can come out of the other side! 


We've been very fortunate to find so many helpful, decent people along the way. I try to show my gratitude in appropriate ways - and for this chap, these dog theme paintings seemed appropriate!

Paul's New Friend







For the painters amongst you, they are painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb rough, and using Winsor & Newton artist quality paint. Both are 1/8th of an imperial sheet, in size.
