"Connie's Favorite Kisser"
My friend Connie Thatcher loved her dog, King.
She found him eating
a box of donuts outside one of the county's first convenience stores
and took him home as soon as she purchased
her. King was depressed
at first but acclimated to Connie's French Provincial décor
once he realized that even the luxurious canopied Louis the XIV platform
bed wasn't off limits. King climbed
into bed with Connie every night and made
her feel safe when the northeast winds rattled the doors and made
her think. Although King is a large
canine, this portrait of him is only 8"
x 10". It's made lovingly with real acrylic paint spread on canvas
