Helen’s Beagle
1991
16” x 20”
Acrylic On Canvas

While driving through a subdivision on trash day, I found a few picture frames piled on top of someone trash cans. One or two of the frames had paintings still in them. One of the paintings was a poorly rendered portrait of a beagle. It was signed ‘Helen’. Thus the title. The painting itself is taken from and expanded on an old sketch turned pen and ink drawing. The working title was ‘Museums’.
