Here is a pastel portrait of my neighbor’s dog, Lucky. He is a special dog and we have known him for a long time now. He is getting on in years and I had wanted to do his portrait for some time. My daughter, Kelsey, would sometimes feed and walk him, and she grew very close to him over the years. Lucky was always a good dog, and also very smart. There were times he would carry his own leash in his mouth when Kelsey would walk him. so funny!
