"Georgie" is the first painting for Cecilia, who commissioned two pet portraits for her mother. Georgie is a three-year-old Pit Bull/Irish Terrier mix. He is a wild man who torments Gracie, the subject of the next painting, but loves all human beings to a fault. He picks on dogs smaller than himself!
Don't you just love the light in this painting? As Georgie was posing calmly in his back seat in the car, the winter afternoon light hit his right side down to the shoulder. When I saw the reference photo, my eyes lit up with delight!
