Gentle Giant

“Gentle Giant” is a piece which explores the stereotypes that have surrounded pitbulls for centuries. I have had people cross the street, cover their children, and give me weird looks all because I was walking my dog that is a pitbull. My dog in the painting’s name is Roman and he is just as any dog. He loves to play with balloons and is best friends with the rabbits in the backyard. This piece is just to show how just like people, these dogs are more than their stereotypes.
