Stroke Charlie

This is a gift for my MIL’s birthday.
I was really afraid to take paint to paper since my stroke in September. My vision has been affected, and I have constant vertigo, so the idea alone has been daunting. I was afraid that it would be so bad that I’d get discouraged and never want to paint again. I guess regardless of whether I can’t paint or just DON’T paint results in the same thing. But I did it, and it’s only a bit late!

Charlie is essentially a pitbull head on a beagle body (or so I’m told, I haven’t met him personally). It’s not perfect by any means, and I didn’t have the courage to do a real background yet, but it looks like him. I’m going to call it a win.
5×7″ watercolour and acrylic on watercolour paper.
