carbon pencil on paper, double matted,
The Story Behind the Image: I was at the park when I saw this young woman and her new puppy. I watched from a distance while they played, then she picked the puppy up and carried it on her shoulder like a "baby". She would hold it down in her arms , talking to it and giving kisses...then put it back up on her shoulder again. The puppy was a large breed, with a reddish color to it's coat...perhaps a Golden or an Irish Setter. I watched them for a long time, taking lots of photos using a telephoto lens.
She got into her car and left before I could get her name of the name of her "baby". She has no idea this drawing even exists. I was really disappointed as I had some great shots of her kissing her puppy that couldn't be used without a release. I've thought of them often. It was a very touching moment, witnessing the love between this young women and her puppy.
The drawing "My Baby" is on cream toned fine art paper, presented in a double mat and also offered in two sizes of Open Edition Prints...check my Portfolio for availability of the Original and prices.
