Well once again, its better late than never and here is my thoughts on this marvelous artwork, released 2 years ago this month.


(‘Waiting For Stan’)

‘Waiting For Stan’ has become one of Steven Townsend’s best selling limited editions of recent years. There is something about this image that has captured the imagination of Dog lover’s.

The idyllic setting, walking your dog through the surf, with the cool refreshing wind on your face and the salty smell of the sea in your nose, I’m sure triggers memories for a lot of people; however it is the way he has captured the collie in the painting that ‘sells’ this picture. So many people have commented to me that the collie ‘is their dog’ and that Steven has captured him or her perfectly. As I’m sure you’ll agree it is an absolute classic image.

Here is the original Press Release from Steven Townsend: “We are pleased to announce the publication in print of the latest dog painting by Steven Townsend.

It is titled ‘Waiting For Stan’ and features a beautiful collie by the name of Ollie on Bamburgh Sands, which is one of Steven’s favourite places. He spotted Ollie, waiting for his owner to catch up, on one of his very early morning walks.

As in all of Steven’s dogs these new prints are already being eagerly awaited and it promises to be another top seller.”

thank you
