Acrylic on Canvas Panel

Lucy is a foundling. She was covered in ticks and falling down from exhaustion when we found her on our street in May almost three years ago. Soooo pitiful. There is a longer story than this, but I'll make it short....We gathered her up and put her in a tub to try to clean her up, fed and watered her, and off she went to the Vet to get checked out and de-ticked. She was about 4 months old at the time. And turned out to be the cutest pure blooded Chocolate Cocker Spaniel. She now lives with my daughter and is the most loyal companion. Her only draw back is that she is wary of strangers....but hey, who can blame her after the neglect she suffered at the hands of some lunatic who dumped her out??!! I think you can see that wariness in this painting. She studies you very carefully as if to say, "Are you friend or foe?" We are all in love with her and glad the angels of lost dogs brought her to us.
