8″x10 acrylic, 2012. This portrait honors Rockie, a beloved pet dog who recently lost his battle with cancer. Rockie was 13 years old and belonged to Allison and her three children, 15, 13, and 11. Although his nickname was “Rockstar,” Rockie was a very sweet-tempered black lab. Sami commissioned this portrait as a Christmas gift for Allison and her family.
