Sully Bush, the amazing service dog who took care of President H.W. Bush through his final days, is in New York, and staying at the Plaza. I learned this from Instagram, where I saw a picture of Sully lounging in his lovely room at the iconic hotel. Of course, I couldn’t resist painting that image! And I was totally excited when Sully liked my painting on Instagram.
“You know the actual dog didn’t like your post, Elena,” John said when I saw him later this evening. John painted Sully too, by the way, as a commission to President Bush. I think that’s pretty amazing!
