I painted this portrait of Mabel in the fashion of “Reclining Girl” by François Boucher, circa 1751. It was the brilliant idea of Mabel’s person, Courtney. Boucher was known for painting voluptuous females, and some would argue that the painting may have crossed a pornographic line at that time. Not so with our reclining Bull Terrier! We are, of course, quite used to viewing paintings and photos of nude dogs without a scandalous thought.
