Mardi Gras Puppy
Painting - Pastel
This is a painting of a young girl, on a New Orleans balcony, holding a puppy.
It is actually a portrait of me at 18 or 19, holding Chiarascura ( Kyra) as a puppy. She had just died' at age 7- almost 8, from bone cancer, and I painted this to help me get through my grief.The gay feathers were added because it was Carnival season, and I didn't feel celebratory, but we liked the painting so much that we had it printed as a poster that year.
