"Pancho Pieta" in progress

9" x 12"
Oil on canvas panel

I saw this photo in a friend's photo file and asked if I could paint it - I love the contrast of the two figures.. this kind of tough guy with this helpless little dog. It reminded me of Michelangelo's Pieta in a way - really just hit me right.

I worked on this last night and a little tonight. It'll probably take me quite a while to finish  - If it comes out the way I'm thinking it should - it'll be a good one to submit to competitions.
