This is Niklas. He lives in beautiful San Diego over looking the ocean. When my husband and I went down to photograph him he was rollicking in his back yard. He'd sit and look out over the ocean. His owners said that is one of his favorite past times.
We took numerous photos of Niklas looking out at the ocean and some more conventional photos for a second painting which will be a head study.
Niklas is a spectacular dog. He is gentle and sweet yet full of life. It is always heart stopping to watch a Borzoi gleefully bound around their homes.
Watch for another portrait of Niklas in the near future! To see more Borzoi paintings on my website please click here!
