The pastel Artist Nina Squire has just sent me this of my dear little hound Barney - it is exactly him, she took a photo of him whilst visiting our office one day and then did her pastel from it. I just had to share it. We have had two other pastels done of him which we are thrilled to bits with.
This one was done from a photograph of Barney running in the field - his favourite past time. It's not quite finished at this stage - she has captured his laughter and joy.
This one was the first one we had done in 2010, she captures his serious side so beautifully as she was taking his photo and he wasn't sure what was going on.
She's truly very very talented and a lovely lady to boot.
