Chocolate Lab in a green field of yellow flowers with water and mountains in the background, magpie on a fence post in the foreground. I painted this as a wedding gift to my nephew and his new wife. They live in Colorado near a lake, mountains in the distance, and a field of flowers around the lake. Magpies are ubiquitous in Colorado, though my nephew said there were none in their area. I thought it was a necessary addition to the painting. Oliver is a goofy Lab, and it was important to them that I capture his silliness in the painting.
