"Gus" by Xan Blackburn, Acrylic on canvas

Gus' portait was done as part of one of my occasional *Portrait Marathons.  Guzzie, as his friends call him, has grown to an enormous jolly giant (an AKC greyhound), and this same goof-ball, wild man, in-your-face hilarity is all still there.  Just much bigger.  He's really big.  I know this guy, he's been to my house.  He's big! 

*That's when I announce a first-come, first-served sign up, and paint small portraits of each pet as quickly as I can (not always that quickly!), until the alloted number has been reached or I run out of canvasses or time.  There is always a donation made out of the proceeds for these marathons to a pet welfare organization I choose ahead of time.
