This is a color pencil commission of a sweet dog that lived a life of leisure with his owners in Goleta, California. Carson’s joyful romps though the vineyard during the day resulted in a happy relaxed dog at night. In this portrait I imagine him remembering his fun times running through the fields. He has now passed, but I’m sure he always knew how much he was loved. This color pencil/ watercolor painting was done as a Christmas gift for Carson’s owners by their parents.
