Champ is my ten year old Boston Terrier. He is my loyal ‘studio dog’, my protector, and the perfect traveling companion on my Artist’s Journey. Champ wants nothing more than to sit on my lap or lie at my feet while I draw and paint. He readily poses for photographs or quick sketches, and most recently, he sat for a watercolor assignment. That painting is hanging proudly in the display case at Valencia College. I don’t know if a painting could ever convey the love I feel for him, or the devotion he seems to feel for me. He is my love, my buddy, my boy.
