This is a completely made up painting depicting my favourite dog Oscar taking his young friend for a walk in the countryside.
The sun is shining, the oil seed rape is in full bloom and the poppies have just started to come out.
I will leave it to the viewer to decide where they are heading and what the little girl may be saying to Oscar, who I know is a very good listener.
This is my first painting in oils for a number of years and as they were fast drying, I got on fine, although it took longer than it would have done in acrylics.
