Model dog

elderly Pointer dog sunbathing, a pet portrait by karen

In my head I called this painting Not All Super Models Are Young. But then I realised that not all oldies are super models. So my insecurities remained unresolved.
This beautiful old Pointer - who probably cares nothing for either modelling or ageing - is called Shamus and I painted him from a photograph by Claire Bartlett. Worked in oil using a brush and a knife.
