Red Border Collie Pet Portrait

This gorgeous Red Border Collie Pet Portrait is the first commission from a client who commissioned me again for Jake’s Painting.  A black and white Border Collie playing in the snow. 

Border Collies are intelligent dogs and seeing photos I am sent for commission pieces reminds me of our Border Collie Tag.  He came to us as a puppy at 8 weeks old. This was while we were living in Norfolk in an old cottage with half an acre of land. Having all that space was brilliant for Tag and my boys to run about.  

This lovely girl’s name is Sophie and she is a lovely colour.  There doesn’t seem to be as many reds as black and white.  I am guessing this is because the black and white dogs were more commonly bred for sheep herding. Border Collies just want to please you all the time whereas our terrier dog just pleases herself! 

There will be a recent red border collie painting I can upload soon.
