Wildlife paintings, portraits & pet portraits by New Zealand Artist Karen Neal


Pastel, A3

Sammy is a beautiful huntaway/collie cross dog who hailed from Hastings. Sadly Sammy has now passed away, she was a very special friend to her owners. The clients loved this photo of Sammy running and smiling on their decking, and we chose to leave the boards as is.

I enjoyed painting Sammy and the unusual composition was as if she was looking out of the painting. Several photos were used for reference.


Hi Karen
Sammy arrived this morning she looks beautiful!!! Have just taken her to the picture framers and they said about 2-3 weeks so when we have her home and up on the wall you will be the first to see it.
Once again thank you so very much 🤗
Kind Regards Tara
