Flora the gentle and docile deerhound

Isn’t she lovely?

Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of Flora the gentle and docile deerhound. I met her in Brockwell park, Brixton, London when I went for a walk.

I saw her walking up the hill and asked her owner if I could pat her. She’s a large dog with long shaggy hair and was walking up the hill languidly. I learnt her name was Flora and she’s 12 years old. As I moved to walk off she tried to slowly follow me. These tiny moments in life are simply priceless. She touched my heart.
