The overwhelmingly positive reaction to this painting astonishes me. Who Rescued Whom has been hanging in the library of LSU's School of Veterinary Medicine since the end of March, where it was exhibited in their annual International Exhibition on Animals in Art and won Judge's Award. One person actually cried when she entered the library and saw it for the first time. She said it reminded her of her dad who had just passed. I knew the composition had potential, the day I came upon Willie and Tucker basking together in the afternoon sun of their first few hours together. Their expressions spoke volumes to me. What I didn't expect was that in capturing this moment, I was able to share it in a deep emotional way with complete strangers.
Upon the request of family members I had a professional photographer make giclee prints. The original is awaiting its new home. If you took the time to read this blog and are interested in a print, comment back and I will give you pricing and dimensions. Thanks for reading!
This is "Rude," pronounced Rudy. He belonged to a veterinarian for whom I worked many years. The little 8 x10"painting was a thank you gift for allowing me to advertise my work in the office. The piece was later chosen to be the cover of JAVMA (Journal for the American Veterinary Medical Association.) One of my more popular images, I have sold many Rude prints.
