Border Terrier 'Overlooked!' fine art dog print by Mike Sibley

"Overlooked!"

Walking through a wood I found a bank that had slipped, exposing a profusion of meandering roots and random boulders. It was a setting just waiting to inspire.

This drawing features the Border Terriers of Lord Montgarrett's former Gamekeeper and a gift from my cats. I needed something that would distract the dogs and my ginger cat Jim came up with the answer — the remains of a white pigeon! I removed the wings and drew one from life as I worked on the final study. I was also careful to tuck the occasional stray feather beneath a rock to signal that the pigeon was a find and not a fresh kill by the dogs.

The title has a double meaning — the exploring dogs have overlooked the rabbit above them as they are themselves overlooked!

The original drawing took 237 hours to complete and remains in my private collection.
