Call for reference photos! 2016 Labrador Retriever Calendar


Got a great photo of your Lab? Share it for a chance for me to paint it for 2016!

Yes, I know…it just the very beginning of 2015 and I am talking about 2016!
It takes many months of planning and painting in between other projects so I like to get a head start on 2016 Molly Poole Labrador Retriever Calendar.
Click the link below for the details for submitting images for consideration. I will select 13 images to paint from that will be presented as the 2016 calendar.
*Please only submit images you have taken yourself.

2013 Labrador Retriever Calendar winning reference images!

2013 Labrador Retriever Calendar featuring original Molly Poole Watercolors
With just over 170 individual photo submissions, narrowing it down to just 13 was no easy task. I had thumbnail photos plastered on my wall in my studio for the last 6 months and I kept changing mind…I couldn’t decide…well in the end, I had to! I wanted a variety of colors, scenes, moments and you all delivered! You are all part of this project!
Thank you!




Congratulations to the following folks for submitting the reference photos that were inspiration for the 13 watercolors that appear in the 2013 Labrador Retriever Watercolor calendar!
