Maddie was commissioned by my friend to give to a special friend of hers. I happen to know a little about the recipient because he was at least one of my son's AP English teachers his senior year of high school. I won't say how long (partly because I don't know) Mr. McBride taught English in Tuscaloosa. I know he taught a lot longer than he had to because of his love and concern for the kids. I think the school talked him out of retiring year after year.
Maddie is his beloved golden retriever. I don't think I have ever seen so much expression on a dog's face. This was a lot of fun to paint. It is painted on an 11 x 14 x 2" canvas.
