Oil on canvas 30 x 24 in 76.2 x 60.96 cm NFS.
This is a painting of an English Springer Spaniel who began life as a working dog.
By the name of Bessie, she grew up with my two daughters and lived until the age of sixteen years.
As Bessie doubled up as a pet dog as well as a worker, she was loved and ruined by my daughters who idolized her, she was retired at an early age from working life.
Bessie was the best field trial dog that never was.
I gave the painting to my youngest daughter Sarah who used to teach her all the wrong things.
All though no longer here, Bessie continues to work for me and has brought me many commissions.
