    This is a portrait I completed about two months ago but I've had to keep it under wraps as it wasn't given, as a gift, until yesterday. Two different views of Ruby. Hope you like her. Pastels on pastelmat size 16x12 inches.

    Thank you Carrie. Nosy away at my website, there is a Lurcher on there well actually the same one twice. He's in a portrait on his own and then in a multi portrait with three other dogs from the same household. I'm assuming you've got Lurchers from your avatar and signature.:D

    I've just got the one Lurcher, but she did lead me to get involved with Lurcher Link.
    Just thoroughly enjoyed having a nosy round your website. Love all the dog and farm animal portraits (guess who comes from a farming family). Making me wish I had some photos of my uncle's Herefordshire bull, William, he was an enormous beast and as gentle as can be.
