Another of September’s Goldens, it was my pleasure to paint the beautiful Dakota for John in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Sadly this lovely girl passed away last spring, leaving a void in the hearts of those who loved her.
While nothing can truly bring her back or replace her, a portrait of her likeness – something new to remember her by and honour her memory – was just the thing John and his family were looking for.
Always a delight to bring another Golden to life on canvas, painting Dakota’s thick coat and the nuances and shades of blonde in her coat were an enjoyable challenge. Her warm brown eyes, subtle smile and peek-a-boo pink tongue are sure to melt anyone’s heart.
Wishing John a lifetime of enjoyment with his new portrait of his girl, Dakota.
