Ruby

Ruby is the cutest, softest Basset hound who belongs to the people who run the gas station down the road from me. She visits on Thursdays and is immensely popular with anyone and everyone. I photographed her last summer, but finally got the urge to slap some paint on a board, and try and create her likeness.
