This smiling yellow Labrador Retriever was a fun portrait to paint. Her name is Chamois and she travels internationally with her family. That is an exciting lifestyle for a rescue dog! Chamois has what is known as "dudley" pigment - her nose and eye rims are pink rather than the desired black. But she is still a cutie and a wonderful Lab. Who could resist that big, silly smile?! This custom dog portrait painting is done in my simplified, abstract style. It is an original acrylic on canvas, an exciting size at 24" x 30". The background colors and style were selected to match the client's requests. I will be making prints of this yellow Lab painting available with a portion of profits donated to support Lab rescue. I will also put this funny dog portrait on greeting cards and gifts in my OtterTail Art for Dog Lovers Shop.
