This dog is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever who I looked after for a week on South Pender when his owners were away. He had a very aristocratic name which I can't remember. But the name 'Friend' suits him very well because during the week we spent together that's what he became – a friend.

To inquire of the artist directly about this work please email:

My subjects for painting and sculpture are many and varied. Portraits, both human and the four-legged kind, sea scapes, landscapes, fields and city streets and buildings. Especially those in Montreal. It takes me a long time to finish a painting. I like the struggle in the paint I see in the end result. I feel this gives the work more depth and meaning and is the reason I paint. If I could do the painting perfectly without effort and quickly then I wouldn’t paint. I’m never happier than when I’m in the middle of the struggle.
