Handsome as a Hollywood movie star, sensitive and intelligent companions, with smiling faces and heart-melting eyes, its hard to resist the allure of a Golden! Their inherent retrieving instinct and strong desire to please their people means that they love to carry things in their mouths - shoes, underwear and soft toys rank high on theirs list of favourite things to collect and present as gifts to their cherished family.
Yet these dogs are so much more than a pretty face. Behind all the glamour lies a versatile and accomplished hunter who loves to be at one with nature. I always smile when I meet a mud-covered Golden out on a walk, fresh from romping through the undergrowth, wallowing in the mud and rolling in all manner of unmentionable substances. They simply love to have a good time with their people. What more could you ask from a dog?
The print combines hand drawn lettering with illustration and is hand printed on my press in a rich yellow ochre ink – and individually signed.
They will fit happily in a ready made frame, like the Ikea Ribba (52x52cm square frame with matt/mount included) or they can be bought in handmade reclaimed wooden frames from my website at www.theenlightenedhound.com (UK shipping only for framed prints).
Paper size is approx 305 x 305mm

This series of prints combines hand drawn lettering with illustration. I was inspired to tell the story of different dog breeds using a dog tag design. I am fascinated by the history and unique characteristics that define particular breeds and I wanted to celebrate that uniqueness by creating dog breed specific prints.
The dog tag idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. I imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’. There’s a bit of the children’s character Paddington Bear in this project too - the lost bear with a luggage label attached - entreating its finder to 'look after this bear'.
