Artist’s Thoughts:  I wanted to represent the personality of the breed. I wanted to show the love of owner to to the breed. I wanted to show the bond between owner, dog and society. This dog has is is loved for what it is and perfect and un-perfect animal. They are cuddly, clumsy, smart, comical, they are a French Bulldog. This little girl, I named Pinky, goes with her owner every day to work on the NY subway. Nothing but love here! I true working dog.

I framed the image in a square represented by the pole, bench and feet. I wanted to put in the shoes, like the old masters painting. The way I painted it is in natural colors and wet and fluid. The only bits of color and the collar and book.
