I created this painting as a statement piece. I love dogs and am always disappointed with how easily they are discarded, especially when they show us such love and loyalty.
I wanted to make a painting that showed that you could change the world for one dog. You could be that dog's world - and get all his love and devotion.
I am delighted that this particular painting has touched the heart of someone involved in the dog rescue world - and it will shortly be used in their publicity and fundraising efforts. I will write more when I have the finalised details.
If you ever consider getting a dog, please rescue one. Many are in shelters through no fault of their own, divorces and deaths being common reasons.
