Golden Retriever Painting in Oil by Lara Harris

4"x6" oil on primed canvas, 
(flickr id:Diana&Gogo,with permission)

This is a small piece I finished of an adorable Golden named Gogo. I'm finding it a challenge to get enough detail into smaller pieces, this being 4"x6", but I'm hoping that I achieved at least a good likeness to Gogo. This is what Diana wrote about her beloved Gogo:

"I'm Diana. I live at Medan, Indonesia. I have one golden retriever name Gogo. He will be 6 years old at July 2009. I love him so much... he has bring so much joy to my family!"

If you would like to have your dog become part of my Painting a Pup a Day project, drop me an email!
