This painting was a gift for my father. I tried all
fall to paint it using watercolor, but finally gave up and finished this
acrylic within a day.
Cheri was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that my father had 20 years ago. She was the gentlest of dogs. When she was a puppy and left her mother, the breeder sent a pink fake-fur blanket with her.
