December 11 - "Thanks, But I'll Wait"
Another in the series of shelter pets coming out in my oil paintings. This is such a necessary part of who I am as an artist. It's agonizing to paint a dog that won't look at you, because you don't matter, YOU are not the person this dog is aching to see--the one he loves--and the one who turned him in, never to return.
this painting is not for sale, because I am planning to show it at the Art Show at the Dog Show in Kansas City next year, and certainly will feature it as a month in the calendar that I'm planning to raise money for animal shelters everywhere. Here's a closeup of his face.
