A few weeks ago, one of my favorite dogs in the world passed away. He belonged to my Sister and her family. He was a Great Dane, named Gary, one of the finest, gentlest, friendliest dogs in the world. It seems unfair and cruel to me, that large dogs have shorter lives. We all loved Gary, he would always greet us and slobber all over us, and we would just pet him and tell him how much we loved him, and laugh. He had a great life, he was loved unconditionally and he gave it back in spades. I was working on a painting when my sister called me to tell me he had passed away, I was so sad but kept working and this is the culmination of the effort. He was a profound dog and he taught us many things, but the hardest lesson to learn;was to let him go. In this painting I am the old one learning new tricks…thank you Gary.
