July 7, Jackson!

Oh I really liked painting this one.... there's that great contrast between the purple-blacks and those golden-creams of the muzzle and eyebrows...
SUCh fun!
"He is a miniature pincher. About 14 years old, but still has a lot of spunk for an old boy. He is a gentle loving dog, who gets along with cats.  He lives with a calico cat named Lil Mama. They are best buddies and give each other head butts.  Jackson also has a neighborhood cat who pops in to visit Jackson about once a month. He also gives Jackson a head butt, has a snack and is then on his way.  He is a faithful companion who has to groom me for a few minutes in the evening just so I remember I belong to him!"
Terri, Jackson's owner, also mentions that Jackson is blind~  This is why his eyes are glowing in that visionary way.  Sometimes it does seem that our animals are seeing so much more than we are capable of...
