Pancho was a commission that was to be given as a Christmas present. Pancho was a beloved pet that had died. I really wanted to capture his spirit and sweetness. Fortunately, Jan was able to tell me about him and I kept that in mind as the painting progressed. After Jan picked up Pancho, she told me that she had showed her grandchildren a photo of the painting and they recognized it as Pancho----a good sign!
But, as usual, I was sweating bullets until I heard if the recipient was pleased............... he was!!
