The portrait of this field-working Golden Retriever is based on a painting by Jim Killen, the Minnesota artist, sportsman and conservationist. His art work is wildly popular with wildlife enthusiasts, hunters, and outdoorsmen. This handsome retriever is one of Killen’s best hunting dog portraits, especially if the Golden Retriever is your breed, and it shows well on a 100% cotton tapestry throw blanket that’s just a good weight for use in any season to keep off the evening chill.
Made in the USA, too!
Now, tapestry is traditionally thought of as a textile for a more formal decor, we know, but when the picture on the throw is of a fine sporting dog out in the field, somehow it takes on a more rustic tone. I’d say this is pretty much the ideal cotton blanket for for a lounge or den decorated in lodge style, or to toss over that old armchair or cot out at the hunting camp itself.
Notice how the green-and-blue blue plaid trim and fringe on the good-sized 52-by-68-inch Golden Retriever Tapestry Throw are totally in tune with the fields and wetlands that are these dogs’ true happy place? A nice touch!
In short, Jim Killen’s artwork transforms a basic throw blanket into a practical and attractive gift for outdoorsmen and their mates, for anyone who is attached to this most beautiful of the working dogs. After all, when they’re not out in the field and stream, doing what these dogs do best – bringing back the ducks! – there’s nothing the typical Golden Retriever likes better than to cuddle up as a warm cosy companion with you.Buy Now
