Chester Sleeping

This is Chester doing what Chester does best - sleep! About 5 months ago, our family adopted this handsome fellow. We had spent a good part of last year searching for the right dog to adopt, and we finally found him through Petfinder. He was found wandering the streets, and had become so thin you could see all of his ribs, but still waging his tail, happy to greet anyone who would give him the time. He was 43 lbs. when he was found, and he is now a healthy 54 lbs. Thankfully, a local rescue group took him in and cared for him until he found us; it seems as though he has always been ours.


  1. I found your blog through Christine's blog, A Painting Story. I love Chester and your clean graphic style in general.

  2. What a wonderful story! Chester makes a great model--this is a portrait full of love.

  3. So happy I found your blog via Daily Paintworks. Love your work and your loving rendition of Chester.
