Boxer dog pastel impressionist sketch art white on black 
by artist V. Bridges Hoyt

NELLIE BOXER • pastel sketch on black Mi Tientes paper
7x5 inches
Special SALE!  $35. incl s&h
This pastel sketch was inspired by a boxer girl named Nellie who had a serious look in her eyes and a big black nose with a little crook that gave her a whimsical look.

Your purchase of this pastel 7 x 5 inch pastel sketch for $35 will generate a $30 donation to Legacy Boxer Rescue. The remaining $5 covers the shipping fee. Nellie's owner has given me permission to paint, and LBR is aware of and welcomes the donation from the sale of this artwork.

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
