I think when my friends named their bulldog Rascal they pretty much predestined his future. I am not sure how much money he ate up in furniture and drapes. The memory that stands out in my mind took place during a dinner party when he came in full view of the dining table and did his solid business on the persian rug in the adjoining room. My dear friend Sherry still wanted a portrait of him. As with SO many bulldogs, Rascal was a desendant of the Georgia bulldog mascot. That dog got lucky a lot. I am not sure how he had time to attend ball games.
This is painted on an 8 x 10" gallery wrap canvas.
I am headed to beautiful Marietta, GA in a bit to attend an opening at DK gallery. A wonderful gallery in the historic center of Marietta. My work along with some other great artists (including a favorite, Lisa Daria) will be show cased. The hours of the opening are 5 - 9 ET tonight if you are in the area.
Funny story. You gotta love them! Congratulations on the show and opening!ReplyDelete

Really love this one, Carol. Dogs are always a sentimental favorite, and bulldogs are so special.ReplyDelete
Oh this is fabulous, Carol! It makes me miss my bulldog, Howie. He was such a love. I have to say your post had me giggling all the way through...especially that lucky Georgia bulldog mascot line...teehee. I also had to laugh at Rascal's, ahem, "statement" to his family.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, gorgeous portrait!ReplyDelete
This rascal is so well painted Carol, you captured the personality so beautifully!ReplyDelete
