Painted when I was a child of 10 years old, this was my first oil painting. I find it interesting that my subject way back then was an orphan pup and today, 52 years later, I paint for animal rescue. Naturally, this painting remains in my private Artist's Collection; however, I have other paintings available, and I do accept commissions ... so think about having your favorite pet's portrait painted.

This was my very first oil painting way back in 1957.
