Expressive dog portrait by Laurie Mitchell features Charlie and his ball on a blue blanket. Gentle mixed media pastel and brushwork and warm/cool color harmonies are balanced by crisp details on the ball, collar, and face. According to family legend, Charlie is a six-year-old Golden Retreiver with an I.Q. of over 300! :-) When he goes fishing with his owner Mike, Charlie is the designated "spotter." If he sees a school of fish he turns around with a big grin as if to say, "Hey, Mike, there they are!"100% of artist's share of proceeds from sale of this product go to support Humane Societies and the RainingCatsnDogs Rescue Group.
