I began my career over forty years ago creating paintings of dogs. I honestly don't know for sure if I would still be alive had I not had the company and responsibility of caring for the dogs in my life. From the hundreds of dog portraits I have created for people over time, I know my story isn't unique. I have always proudly said, I found this dog on the road, or this one came from a shelter and so on. The knowing and unspoken secret between my dogs and I has always been, I was the rescue.
Please enjoy the little video of Beau. He is gone now, but he was special to me and it was an honor and pleasure to capture a little moment in a painting for Beau's person Warren.
