Having been a "Goldie mom" for close to 15 years, Goldens are, of course, very dear to my heart. I've recently had the opportunity to draw a portrait of "Dana", pictured directly below. Dana's mom, who lives in Massachusetts, commissioned me to create Dana's portrait. I loved the reference photo which showed Dana looking up intently, with bright, sparkly eyes.

Another commissioned portrait was of a Golden Retriever named Avery...
and his doggy brother, Ryder, a Clumber Spaniel.

and here's a detail of each of them from the large portrait...
