Pet Portrait, “King in Field” was painted as a lasting tribute to a dog that was more than a canine companion. King was closer to his master than most people are to each other. As a roommate, he loved his owner dearly. The intellegence of his dog was apparent in his every breath. His loyalty was beyond compare. He is dearly missed each and everyday. King’s owner’s best friend commisioned “King in Field” as a way to keep the memory of such an amazing companion alive. Zapata Studios, Pittsburgh.
