Zsu Zsi of The Night

In 2007, I received a gift from Aaron Paquette, it was an incredible painting of my beloved bulldog Zsu Zsi. Many of you may remember her in the gallery snoring under the card rack or sitting on my desk quietly observing the doorway. The painting Aaron brought in was the first of a collection of portraits of Zsu Zsi that has grown to over 60 pieces. Today CBC News launched an article by Andrea Huncar entitled Zsu Zsi’s Legacy.
