Say hello to Tilly

A few weeks ago this stray dog took shelter in one of our sheds,we tried everything to find her owners,neighbouring farms,police,the vets,animal shelter...nothing,
So it looks like she is here to stay.
She's a border collie and it is obvious she was a working sheep dog,
oh well,another excuse to go out painting err walking .
oil on panel 6x8"

my new plein air partner.

Hello Rob, hello Tilly!

Great job Rob. I like your pictures a lot, specially for the use of the color. A pleasure for my eyes to visit your site.

I love your atmospheric qualities. The lighting is similar to Oregon, USA. I want to visit your blog more often so I am adding it to my link favorites.
