Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier
There is something irresistible about the soulful eyes of a spaniel, and the Cavalier is one of the most soulful of all spaniels.  Cavaliers are the kind of dog that make you say "awww," but they are also very brave, very loyal and have a wonderful sense of humor and a joyous nature. The kind of person you would want for your best friend.  I always enjoy talking with Cavalier people because they are as friendly as the dogs they love. and they don't mind at all when I can't resist stroking that soft, silky fur.

This is an acrylic painting on stretched, wrapped canvas.  No staples show on the sides, and all the edges have been painted so that it may be displayed with or without a frame. It has been listed on Daily Painters for Tuesday and also Art Helping Animals. You may view the listing on eBay by clicking here.

From time to time people write me to request more paintings of their favorite breeds. Cavalier King Charles are among the most requested.  For cats, it is usually Persians or Maine Coons.  I love reading about your favorite breeds, and am happy to paint them when I can. This week I am working on some Persians and hope to show them to  you soon.
