From owners Robin and Stefan:

James, our little ‘sensitive hooligan’.
James is the ‘rugrat’ of our family. Always up-beat, always happy and always in the mood to play.  But underneath his boisterous temperament you find an incredibly sensitive and affectionate dog.  He has the kindest brown eyes, who are always slightly ‘on alert for action’.  Even when he’s napping, the lightest sound or movement will make him look up to see what’s happening. We asked Sarah to choose whichever picture she felt would work best for James’ painting as we found it nearly impossible to pick just one image ourselves.  It’s incredible how Sarah knows, with only a little background info, which painting she’ll make to capture a dogs’ personality!
