    Hi folks

    I wrote a story about my old labrador giving a retrieving lesson to my young labrador pup ...
    You can read it on http://the-dog-museum.com/labrador_retriever.html

    meanwhile, admire the lab portraits on this page of the Museum

    :p yes, admire them ... I painted them :D

    Wow! Those paintings are great; they are very realistic! It's really neat how you had to do the black color on the labs. When I take a picture of my black lab puppy he just comes out a black blob! Haha :)

    Your artwork is superb and the attention to detail sublime. I must also comment that your narrative is well written, especially taking into account that English is not your first language.

    Thanks Renee
    Yes english is not my first language and my year of university are far behind.
    The worst is my french accent ... I am invited to give a watercolor and graphite workshop about dogs portraits in Palm Beach in january.
    I am already shy... and scared to paint with someone looking at me
    but ... to give a 5 days course !!! in english !!! aie aie aie !
    I hope my english will come back quickly

    You are right... it is VERY difficult to take a good photo of a black lab
    their fur really drink the light.
    I don't know if you have seen the black lab portrait in "the pets's plot"
    I took the photo of the lab just in front of a bow-window against the light.
    To paint him, I had to invent all the dog

    You'll do well. I predict that you will enjoy being with people who share your passion for art and dogs that all of your shyness and trepidation will evaporate and you will just have a marvelous time.
