(scroll below to purchase)

I have been asked be a few friends to start painting labs. I agree that labs are a familiar family friend and many folks have a lab or grew up with one. I thought this little tyke was a great first subject. I can totally relate to this fellow; exhausted and straight out of energy. Forget a cat nap, I want the doggie coma that this little one is enjoying.
Now that spring is here and the yard beckons, I am feeling more and more like crashing in the middle of each day after I have been hazed by clouds of pollen and bruised by all the landscaping that my property requires. May your hard work be fruitful that you might have rest - Enjoy. Jared

You really have a handle on painting dogs, Jared. These are spectacularly done! Not only do I see a doggie coma in progress, but I can also imagine the doggie delirium that preceded it!
