Oil Pastel on Strathmore 500 Charcoal Paper
Everybody says, a dog is man's best friend. OK. Here he is ... Actually this MAY be a she - MAGGIE.
Best Friend is going to be a gift given to a brother of a friend, but I am guessing my friend is going to want this work for her own. She loves Maggie as much as her brother does, maybe more. Truth be known, Maggie scared the bejeebers out of me when I went to visit before doing the portrait. But, as I pushed the oil pastels over the paper this week, I got more and more comfortable with the doggie with the beguiling golden retriever smile. And, I understand why little faces like this are hard to resist. Yep! Best Friend. Good title.
Maggie, good dog! :o)
