This Painting is of a Working Trial Champion Australian Shepherd, she was the sister of my first working stockdog her name was “Catdog” she is shown working working her stock with great skill
The stockdog trial is a competition to showcase the natural working ability of the breed through the use of certification for challenging trialing disciplines on several classes of stock (ducks,sheep and cattle).This very cute little Australian Shepherd on late late afternoon is showing very strong herding and working ability, pushing a loose sheep back into the flock. The sheep of course had a different idea in mind, its what you might call a CLASH OF WILLS but we all know the little stock dog will win in the end.
Original Oil painted on 11" X 14" stretched canvas created in my Grants Pass, Oregon Studio
