Suguid is a wonderful dog who has enjoyed many long walks with Margaret in the fields across the road and creek from where they live. I had the pleasure of taking a few walks with them while I visited the area – Wrights Corners, New York. We lived across the street and a few houses down when I was in high school, which was a few years before Suguid and Margaret moved in.
The painting is composed of several pictures and a bit of imagination. If you look closely in the reference image you will see an extra nose because I mirrored the original head to face as it is in the painting.
This oil painting is 11 x 17 and I hope Margaret agrees – it was worth the wait!
