Prince - Tale of a dog

Prince's story began in 1996 when Steve brought him home as a frisky puppy for Dori on her birthday.  He was a lively little guy with huge feet that foretold how big this dalmatian puppy would grow to be.  As with most pups, Prince performed his fair share of messing on the floor and chewing the leather furniture, as well as harrassing the two cats whose home was here before Prince arrived.  Over the years Prince was a great companion and protector who loved to go for walks in the evening near his Arizona home.  Like most people who have dogs Steve and Dori considered Prince to be one of the family and their "child".

In November 2008, Prince passed on at a ripe old age of nearly 12 years.  As a rememberance of Prince I painted a portrait, 20 x 24 inch acrylic on canvas.  Hopefully this will help Steve and Dori deal with the loss of their best friend.

A lovely painting of a special friend that has moved on. The plush, red foreground and overhead lighting provides a beautiful contrast and exemplifies the regal appearance and namesake of this handsome dog.  Very nice work!
