Puccini the Poodle

Puccini
8" X 10" pen-and-ink
2008

Here is a commission I just finished yesterday. Puccini, or "Cini" for short, is a gorgeous apricot Standard Poodle. Doesn't he have the sweetest, most wistful look on his face? He suffered quite a bit as a pup at the hands of an irresponsible breeder. He had parasites, pancreatic problems, and digestive issues. When he was three months old he looked more like he was six weeks old. However, his is a happy story. Now he not only has a good home, but good health and great looks as well. I think he’s a real hunk! Can't you just hear Madame Butterfly singing his praises?
