Dogs are so fun to paint because the dog's personality, or what you interpret it to be, seems to come through. We have had plenty of Golden Retrievers, and I've never met one (at any age) that didn't act like a huge, affectionate puppy. The dog here, Remy, seems to be sending a different message with this calm demeanor and sophisticated pose... I'd be curious to meet this dog and wonder if it would be interested in mentoring a few Goldens that I know!
