A painting commissioned FOC by a Greyhound racing magazine. I believe it was a Greyhound owned by one of our 'Royals'. Homefarm Flyer, I think was/is his name. What eventually happened to the portrait I don't really know - and I only have this poor quality photo of the final portrait. The original reference photograph was quite uninspiring, so I created an imaginary landscape to set him in. The magazine was to publish a double-page spread of my work but unfortunately the company ceased trading before I was featured!
