Gouache on watercolour board.

Was used as an illustration for a short story in “My Weekly” called “Megan’s way” written by Hilary Halliwell. Don’t tell Indy the character in the story was a girl.

    What a wonderful dog- is this a Scottish shepherd? They are so very smart.

  • Indy is a Border Collie, too smart for his own good.

    A very beautiful Border Collie doggy. We have one too and she would LOVE Indy! Her name is Mary. (Bit of a long way from Australia for a visit though). You are very talented.

  • A bit far but I could do with the warmth and sun. Thank you Lynda.
