Bill

Good morning all.
Today's painting is rather special to me.

Its a portrait of Bill, a jack russell - and he was painted for the winner of an auction, that was held to benefit South East Dog Rescue.

So the rescue benefits and Bill's owner, who has seen the portrait, has a gorgeous painting (her words!) to enjoy.

That's my good news story - hope you enjoy it too!

    So good to know about this. Artists can really contribute to the society in many ways. And I too love this painting. The body language of Bill is superb.

  9. Doesn't he look like a happy guy! Beautifully done. I have dozens sketches of our pup but none that catches the personality and light in the eye. You have it here!
