'Just Thinking' Parson Russell Terrier fine art dog print by Mike Sibley


Writing my book "Drawing from Line to Life" I needed a small dog for the drawing featured in the final chapter - our Parson Russell Terrier Maisie was the obvious choice. She was just 11 weeks old as depicted here. The day after I photographed her she ran under one of our horses and was tragically killed. So this is also my tribute to a wonderful little pup who filled our lives with pure joy.

I needed a variety of textures for this study, so I walked round our farm and found the wheels off a hen house and a spare ring for my Cambridge roller. All I needed now was something to connect them to Maisie - and a length of old rope suited perfectly. Pulling ropes - pulling anything - was Maisie's favourite game.

The original drawing took 72¾ hours to complete and will always remain in my private collection.
