Handsome Black Labrador Portrait

Hi and thank you for your visit!

This is my latest Labrador Painting.

It’s a commissioned portrait of Black Labrador Retriever. He’s owned by my friend. 🙂

I was thrilled because this boy looked so sweet and handsome in the photo.

Memory of my Labrador Painting — Apple Farm Labradors

Hi and welcome!

Thank you for your visit.

This is one of my favorite Labrador Paintings.  Apple Farm Labradors.

Apple Farm Labradors by Naomi Ochiai

You can see my signature on the right-bottom corner.  It says 2006.

It was our first year when we visited Shinsu area, Karuizawa, Nagano prefecture with our Black Labrador Noiraud in Summer.  Shinshu area was a beautiful place with fresh and cool air.

Blue sky was clear and mountains and everything looked so beautiful and breathtaking.  In addition, shopping area and people looked so cheery and active.  It looked like it would continue forever.

I was worried so much about my aging boy’s health condition, but, everything went so very well at that time…  There was perfect “happiness” during the trip.  I’m thankful for that.

Shinshu area is well known as its apples.  Summer is not a season of apple harvest, though, I decided to paint something related to Shinshu as a tribute of our happy trip with Noiraud.


Thank you for reading!!

See you. 🙂

Winter Labradors Painting


I’ve been having a pain with my right shoulder and a couple of fingers.  It’s because of a labor with computer!!  Modern disease, I think.  Since I love drawing digital drawings and playing with a computer, I always forget to take a break.  This is a problem!!

Here is my latest painting.  This is a sunset view in winter.  Two beautiful Labrador Retriever dogs are standing beside the winter tree.  You can see they have a heart…

What your dogs bring to you is … just LOVE.

Black Labrador Portrait with Love

Here is one of my latest Labrador Paintings.

I decided to paint my Black Labrador Noiraud’s portrait again this year.

After he went to the Bridge, I hadn’t painted him for two years because it hurt me a lot.

Yesterday was his 14th birthday and I was so glad that I could finish this on his birthday.  I hope he is happy to see his beautiful portrait and wags his tail at the Bridge.

His eyes were twinkling and so beautiful just like a dream.  I miss his everything and thank him so much.

Yellow is Noiraud’s color.

Vital and cheery and positive like Sun Shine.

He’s no longer with us, but he became a legend for me.

Thank you Noiraud!!  Your Mom keeps painting for you. 🙂


Black Labrador Whimsy Painting


This is my old painting.  I had been thinking that I needed to retouch the dog’s face because I didn’t think it was OK.

It’s not a nice feeling at all to feel this way to see my finished work.  So, I think I had been having a negative feeling about this painting for such a long time.

At long last, I decided to do it to make me happy after a ten years break!
