"A Friend In Need"

36"x 48"
(my terrible picture!)

Original, "A Friend In Need"
by, C.M. Coolidge
commissioned in 1903

My client said, "Could you paint MY dogs playing poker"? 

"Sure!", I said.

I got a variety of, umm, "good" this one:

"Pepper" the one in the front left.


I did A LOT of research. I found this site which has dogs driving cars! Really!

I downloaded pictures of poker chips, berets, french cigarette holder, pipes, cigars, dogs, etc ........ whew!

They loved it! :)
