The sweet, sometimes ornery, sometimes destructive, sometimes messy Great Dane has passed away. He was a wonderful, big ol' doofus who will be missed. This painting, Bay Watch, depicts Jax in Pensacola Bay, late afternoon. The sand bar goes out a long way, so one can wade 1/4 of a mile or so before submerging. Jax was my nephew's dog. We spent a lot of time on this small stretch of beach, Jax barking at pelicans and chasing driftwood sticks into the water.
