My Black Labrador Junior

Junior was our own dog. The first child to our home so to speak. Hence the name Junior. Truly one of the best dogs to walk the earth. He loved everyone and was everyone’s best friend. Sadly Junior was diagnosed with cancer just months short of his 10th birthday. We lost him within weeks of his diagnoses.

I am glad I managed to paint his portrait before he passed away. I feel his spirit is captured within the amber layers of the paint that I needed to capture his gorgeous eyes. Now he still shares our home with us. Not in body, but in spirit.
