Charlie Boy Boxer Portrait

watercolor and ink on Arches 140# cp paper
8x8 inches

Charlie Boy is my pet portrait showing the character of a fine Boxer who was rescued by Lone Star Boxer Rescue in Houston, Texas. Charlie's foster mom fell in love with and adopted him 4 years ago. Not too long ago, Charlie was diagnosed with mast cell disease. His mom knows that her time with Charlie will be short and reminds herself daily that the quality of time spent with Charlie is more meaningful than their quantity of time together. We would all do well to remember that in our relationships with pets or people.

Thanks for following my Texas Sauce Art Life.
