Boxer dog on a deck in a garden setting with desert garden and open door in background, potted plant nearby. I was commissioned by two friends living in Burbank, CA to paint their dogs. It so happened I would be visiting LA in the near future and they lived down the street from one another so I was able to have live interviews with both womena and both dogs on the same day. (I later shipped the paintings to them after completing them in my studio in Seattle). Venus is pictured on her deck in her garden, open door to the house behind her and cactus plant in the background- all on a sunny day in sunny CA.
