Sally Painting

This painting is of Sally, the beautiful herding dog who sadly is no longer around. This was a fun painting to do because the background was really nice to paint along with the dog. The painting is 8x8 in Acrylic.

“Sally came from herding stock and we bought her at a feed store.  When she was a puppy I played soccer with her and she would nip at the backs of my legs to herd me.  She was a very loyal dog and was protective of her small pack.  If my mom and I weren’t walking right next to each other on a hike then she would run between both us to make sure we both were okay.  She was sort of an alpha female and when she played with other dogs she sort of tried to herd them and would sometimes bark in a shrill tone.  She was intelligent and really enjoyed playing find it in the house.  We would put her in her crate and then hide a toy or food and she would search every room and hiding place until she found it.
