Rowdy___9x12 oil on linen panel___SOLD commission

I hear Rowdy is a famous bulldog, with a prestigious bloodline! I was given the commission by one of the galleries that represents my work in Tennessee, Up Against The Wall Gallery.

Rowdy is the grandson of the Bulldog mascot at the University of Georgia (UGA VI)....this must be why he is so handsome! (He is described to me as a "sweet dog with a gigantic personality") I suppose when he is not posing for the pictures he is wild and crazy and was given his special name....I hope the collector who Mr. G, who commissioned this likes it!

Lovely portrait of this English Bulldog V. If the owner doesn`t like it, I do. All the best.

Fabulous job. You really caught the essence of a bulldog.

That dog has attitude. He looks like he would make a great mascot himself.

I am Mr.M (who is actually Mr. G, but that doesn't matter) and I love the painting. Rowdy belongs to my son John, who lives in Charleston SC. John got him in Nashville when he was a student at Vanderbilt. Rowdy is actually the grandson of UGA VI. He is now six. He is sweet dog with gigantic personality. Everyone in our family loves him. Thank you again for your portrait. You captured him just as I expected. Blessings, Phil.
