New Labrador Retriever Portrait Painting

This is my latest yellow Labrador Retriever portrait painting. It is a custom Christmas gift a thoughtful client commissioned for their dog lover friend. I sure hope he likes it! The owner and his dog were both described as bachelors, so the request was made for masculine background colors. I am always happy to do whatever I can to make each portrait just what the customer wants! The glow at the top is funny lighting on my photo, not on the painting. It is a cold, snowy, very gray day here at my home in NY and I didn't set up great lighting for this photo. Actually, photographing paintings well is a job in itself! If you are interested in commissioning your own custom dog portrait painting or other custom dog art, please visit my OtterTail Lab Art website and/or email me. This yellow Lab painting is 12 x 16", acrylic on canvas.

Adopt a Smiling Yellow Lab

Meet Sally! She is my latest foster Labrador that was rescued from a bad situation with her former owner. Sally is full of energy and had her own ideas about chasing the family goats at her previous home. Rather than keep her tied for life her owners decided it was best to let her go to find a new home. She is ready, willing, and able to be someone's family companion.
In addition to donating my time, training, money, and love to foster rescue Labs, I also donate a portion of profits from sales of my Labrador Retriever art. Please visit my shop to select gifts that give in more ways than one!
