My yellow lab Indi 18×22
Staedtler and Faber Castell watercolor and watercolor pencils and pastel

This is my sweet Indi my Yellow Lab …“My Best Girl!”…I just had to capture her expression in a portrait…The essence of who she is behind those big brown eyes…Her eyes tell all..there are no hidden secrets ….She has the sweetest nature and is so forgiving…Loves everyone…When she greets someone her whole body wags and she is ever so gentle…especially with children…She will lick their faces all over especially the little kids…She hasn’t forgotten anything from puppy school and can even say her prayers.. .She has one black whisker that sticks straight out ??..She has three teddy bears all the same so if one gets too dirty there is always a back up…She sucks on their noses like she is a new born little puppy with her mother.. It is really cute but also very funny to watch her…She has big brown eyes that look like black holes when the light isn’t shining in them..When she has done something wrong it is written all over her face and the tip of her tail is wagging really fast. especially when she says “No” ..Loves affection and her tummy scratched….She watches out for my two cats…If they start to fight she breaks it up…She lays at my feet every morning while I eat my cereal waiting patiently knowing that when I am finished I will poor some milk into my empty bowl for her….She follows me everywhere and is great company ..very devoted….She sleeps in our bed every night sideways so takes up all the leg room..Indi is a big part of our family and travels with us everywhere.When she knows she’s going for a car ride or walk she starts jumping and dancing all around….She captures everyones’s heart.!!..Other than my husband she is my best friend and companion. She’s beautiful and I love her…“My Best Girl Indi”.
