Sweet Georgia Brown

Illustration, Traditional media


Georgia Brown is a sweet ol’ hound dog who’s been with Rocket Dog Rescue for many years now. Given her age and health concerns, she isn’t likely to be adopted, so the Rocket Dog Urban Sanctuary in Oakland, CA has become her forever home. She totters around the kitchen there, hanging out with the other senior dogs and being doted on by the Sanctuary staff.

RDR’s founder asked me to paint Georgia’s portrait to hang in the Sanctuary. This is a not-very-good photo of the finished piece in its frame — it’s too big for the scanner.
