Meet Champ!

ChampThis is Champ.  Champ’s mom commissioned this painting for his dad for Christmas.  And while Champ isn’t with us any longer so many people knew him as he went to work with them everyday.  Several times while I was working on the commission at The Studio people came in and said, “Hey, is that Champ?”  He was famous.
