charlotte's lab

Pennsylvania artist Charlotte Yealey's portrait above is chocolate lab perfection.  The blocky head, the mild and soulful alertness in the eyes, the rich fur - that fur!  See how the highlights on the cheek make it look lustrous in the low gold light.  Here's more, from her artist's statement:
Charlotte Yealey is a professional artist and her love for nature shows in each painting. Being raised on a farm in rural Pennsylvania, she grew up surrounded by animals and nature. Locally known for pet and people portraits, Charlotte wants to work on expanding her style to include the relationship with people and animals showing the love and affection we have for our pets and the appreciation for all the beautiful creatures of the world. York Academy of Arts was part of her training along with classes and workshops with various professional artists including Tom Lynch and Claudia Nice. She opened her own pet grooming business and painted portraits of pets for over 20 years, and now that her daughter runs the business she paints full time when she is not visiting local nursing homes and schools with her Therapy dogs. Charlotte instructs drawing classes for adults and children at the Hanover Area Arts Guild and in her home studio. She currently shows her art at the Hanover Area Arts Guild Gallery, York Art Association and Art & Soul Gallery in Leymone. She is also a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and Daily Painters of PA. She sells reproductions of her art on various sites on the internet and has her own website at www.charlotteyealey.com.
You should also visit her Etsy shop, Charlotte's Web Art.
