This was another in a rather short series with the ghost image. The idea for the ghost started with the German Shepherd because having a problem with the layout and was trying to think of a way to “frame” the dogs without using a frame.. and so the ghost was born. Regretably the client already had over 40 pieces and the ghost would have to be removed for it to fit in with the rest of them.

I love what I do and I do what I love.. been drawing for over 60 years now – I hope I’ve got it right.
