Here in sleepy Melton I have been adding the finishing touches to my portraits of "Rottys", a beautiful greyhound a little grey rabbit and a loyal canine paratrooper!
You may be able to make out the first stages of my greyhound commission "Grace" on my easel. Below is the final version. Although there's a story about that..
As a paratrooper Chris has had a long association with training dogs to be used in combat zones such as Afghanistan many of whom have saved the lives of civilians and soldiers. This courageous dog Pegusus took part in many missions with him parachuting with his handler into dangerous areas and even has is own award and by the regiment. He is now enjoying a lovely retirement. This painting is a celebration of a hero dog!
