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.
