Henry at One

12 x 16 oil on panel

This fellow was one of a litter of 4 born at my house in September 2006.  I was fostering rescued breeder Cairns at the time and his momma was sent to me very very pregnant.  He subsequently picked his new dad and went to live close by, so I could continue to see him.  That's the best that fostering gets!  He has changed colors as Cairns are wont to do, so I'm planning two more portraits of him to record his new look.

I do not know why my other photos have disappeared, so while I investigate, cross your fingers that Google hasn't thrown them in the round file of cyberspace.


  1. What a cutie. Loved the story.
    We had a wonderful Cairn for 17 years and we still recall the fun times he gave smart and I must mention...his amazing loyalty.
    Hope you are doing well

  2. Wow, I love your painting style! And what a cute little subject to work on.

  3. Stunning painting! The dog looks like alive, just like on a photo! Great photo.
