This wonderful Pitbull mix, was a rambunctious, sweet dog and represented the best personality traits of a much misunderstood bloodline. If this portrait sells, part of the proceeds will go to the SPCA ,where many of her kind wait to be adopted. This portrait would never have happened if not for the devoted couple who adopted her as a puppy.
"Waiting," 30x16" Prismacolor Pencils on rag mat board. The reference is mine of course. If you follow my blog and work at all, you will see these three characters crop up often. This is what I imagine dog purgatory to be- that somewhere in between breakfast and when mom gets home. The cat can do as he likes, but for the moment, is interested in something outside. I chose the french grays for inside and full color outside to create an obvious border between dream state and full awareness. I hope it works. I had to try anyway.
