George - Boxer dog in Coloured pencils
This is George.
He was adopted by his Mum Sarah, in 2012 and even though he had severe Athritis, underwent surgery to remove a couple of lumps, one of which was cancerous and also being prone to eye ulcers, he sadly had to have one of his beautiful eyes removed due to Glaucoma, in spite of this he was a 'very happy, lovable old boy'
He sadly went over the Rainbow bridge in 2014 and Sarah wanted a fitting tribute to him as well as portraits of her other Boxer babies, Blanca & Brin.
Although Sarah had many photographs of George, it was difficult to find the right image to use for the reference photo but finally decided on this one as it was typically George, with his little pink tongue poking out.
