"Rolo"

Meet Rolo, a gorgeous Labradoodle. I fell in love with him the first time I saw him.
I could have done a bit more, but I felt I had made a connection with Rolo ... it was time to stop.

It's not been a nice day, yet I am sitting here with a big smile on my face looking up the hill at the back of the house. The grass is such a bright sunlit green, with long shadows stretching from the trees. The sky is blue, the clouds are white and fluffy ... how I love this beautiful country. :)

Beautifully painted Ingrid. Your posts of animal paintings are always lovely to view. My wife loves Labradoodles and Cockerpoos too but I think I have more than enough to handle with our Beagle!

There's a whole world behind those eyes, Ingrid.

Thank you 'all' for your lovely encouraging comments. They mean a lot to me and I appreciate you taking the time to stop by. I have never seen a Cockerpoo,Michael. I will look them up. Anon ... it's been raining all day and I have already told you. I am not having another dog. Hope you had a great holiday! :)

I agree, your pet portraits are really lovely, beautifully slightly understated.

I'd love to see the view you mention you have from your house... any chance of some photos?
And thanks for following my blog!
