This is a portrait of Poppy, who - very sadly - had to be put to sleep today, aged 13 years and three months. She belonged to a friend of mine, and Poppy came along on several walks around wind farm sites.
Appropriately, Poppy herself was quite an Art Critic, and barked excitedly when she saw some of my animal paintings, especially ones with cats in them. One of her favourite TV programmes when she stayed with me was Frazier, which shows she had good taste. She was amazingly fit for her age, and could still scamper across the fields up until the last few days. She will be sadly missed.
