Artist's Description

ON JANUARY 4, 2009, I WAS FISHING OUT AT A PRIVATELY OWNED DUCK CLUB, WHERE MY FRIEND JACK IS THE CARETAKER OF THE PROPERTY. IN OCTOBER 2004, THIS BLACK LAB ADOBTED JACK OUT ON GRIZZLY ISLAND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. TICK SHOWED UP WITH ABOUT 100 TICKS ALL OVER HIM, SO JACK SAT DOWN AND PULLED EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM OFF OF THE LABRADORS SKIN. THAT’S HOW HE GOT THE NAME TICK. WELL, 4 YEARS HAVE GONE BY SINCE THAT LIFE CHANGING DAY,,,,,AND IN THIS PORTRAIT THAT I TOOK OF JACK AND TICK, YOU CAN TELL THAT “TICK JUST LOVES JACK”. JACK WANTED A MORE SERIOUS POSE, BUT I THINK WHEN I SHOW HIM THIS SHOT, HE WILL AGREE THAT THIS IS THE ONE THAT SHOULD BE FRAMED AND HANGING ON THE WALL. THE OTHER SHOTS I TOOK WITH A MORE SERIOUS TONE TO THEM, JUST DON’T LET YOU SEE THE LOVE IN THE FACES OF BOTH PARTICIPANTS. I HOPE JACK LIKES THIS ONE AS MUCH AS I DO. UPDATE, WHEN I GAVE THIS SHOT TO JACK IN THE FRAME THAT I MADE FROM RECYCLED PINE FLOORING, HE WAS FLABERGASTED. HE COULDN’T BELIEVE I COULD MAKE SUCH A GOOD LOOKING FRAME, FROM SUCH BAD PINE FLOORING, WHICH WAS DESTONED TO BE FIRE WOOD TO BEGIN WITH. THIS IMAGE NOW HANGS ON JACK’S WALL OF LOVE IN HIS HOUSE. I TOOK THIS IMAGE WITH MY LITTLE KODAK EASYSHARE AUTO ZOOM CAMERA AND MADE THE NECESSARY CHANGES IN ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0.
