The stages of Desi

By now you all know how much I love dogs. My particular fondness in the terrier line is the russell (parson or jack).

Today I begin a new jack painting, that of darling Desi, who recently passed away.
His mom, Barbi, is a very special lady, always out rescuing dogs, giving them life and hope, and finding them new homes. She is another I know through the good offices of Bill Tomei (may he rest in peace).

So to paint her own Desi , in the hope of giving her some comfort, is a real honour. This is on behalf of all the dogs who owe Barbi their lives .
Thank you.

First, the pencil drawing

and then the sky...
