Marvin the Chow – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas panel


Marvin the Chow – Painted April 18, 2008 – One of the oldest true breeds known to man were hunters in China as early as 150 BC. Marvin is an old Chow and now these days he mostly hunts a good place to take a nap. His personality warm and friendly and he is always at his owner’s sides when they come to our local coffee shop.  Your comments are welcome.

I recently found out that Marvin passed away in August of this year..

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
