Oil on linen – 20 x 24 inches – Private Collection
This painting was only partly completed when I showed it to an interested collector. He loved much of it but asked if we could replace the Saluki I had begun to paint with his own hound. He sent me a photo that was not only the right angle to match the painting but had light flowing from behind, just as it is in the scene. He really understood how to help me fulfill his request.
