The organiser of the pub exhibition space is an artist herself, and a teacher. I was a bit surprised at her delight when viewing my work for the first time. She was so excited over Lucky that she bought it on the spot! I was thrilled that an artist and someone who taught art would like my animated-looking quirky animal paintings enough to want to buy one. I knew I still had a lot of painting hours ahead of me before I felt like I was painting to my potential. Jackie even said she liked my style and would like me to paint her own dogs.Seven months down the track and I got the opportunity to go out to Jackie’s place to meet and photograph her dogs. There were three. Two big black ultra excited hounds met me at the gate. One of them was Max.
