I painted this dog portrait for St. Patricks day. . .my funny nod to the Irish. A panting purebred Irish runs toward a cool glass of beer. “Spirited, Headstrong, Thirsty!” reads the caption. Gotta love those feisty redheads! I worked with a little spitfire of an Irish woman once and was very careful to keep myself in her good graces. I wouldn’t want an Irish adversary. An Irish Setter however, seems like nothing but a bundle of goodwill and cheer…perfect attributes for a most companionable bar mate. Bottoms up!
