I've titled this painting of the Newfoundland dog Shamus "Gentle Soul". His owner, Kim Clune, referred to him as "the gentlest of souls" in her email to me when she submitted his photo for my Dogs With Toys painting series.
Shamus is shown here in my painting based on Kim's photo of him with a favorite toy. This gorgeous animal was adopted by Kim and her husband in March of 2oo9. You can read how they found Shamus and more about him here.
After watching his videos on the website, he truly does seem to fit the title of "Gentle Soul".
