This painting is a portrait of a liver and white
Springer Spaniel, one of the most desirable colors for this breed. We
most admire the dog's ears and eyes. Anyone having a Springer will
recognize that half-closed look when the dog is fully alert, one of the
charming features of the breed. The ears are wonderfully painted,
showing the thick, long fur. The dog is groomed as a field dog, without
a long skirt that could get caught in bushes and bramble. This dog
was painted when in excellent physical condition for field work.
