The story behind...

Proud Dog

My intention wasn’t to capture the characteristics of any particular breed of dog in this study.

Instead, I poured paint, made marks and kept certain ‘mistakes’ to see what type of canine would emerge!

A rather distinguished character gradually appeared.

I became interested in his proud pose and I sensed pride and gentleness in his eyes too.

He could be the dog that sits at the top of a laneway or doorstep protecting it and waiting for his owners return.

This dog has a deep sense of belonging.

I imagine him to be devoted to his owner and reacting excitedly on his return.

Proud Dog’ represents for me that special bond between human and dog.

He has all those qualities that we are so grateful for in our canine friends.
