"Great Pyrenees (Ollie)," 8" x 10", commissioned dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Proceeds from the sale of Ollie's painting will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.
These dogs are gentle giants, and Ollie fits that to a T. His beginnings were dark, chained in a stall in a barn full of over 200 feral cats. Ollie's first owner used the cats as target practice, and didn't treat the dog much better. Deprived of food and water, it was questionable if Ollie would survive after the humane society brought him to safety. A Great Pyrenees rescue stepped in, and the rest is a Hollywood ending. Ollie is now in a forever home where he is loved to pieces, and the ever caring (and tolerant) nanny to two 2-legged siblings.
Thanks, as always, for looking at my paintings.
And for sharing these stories with your friends and family.
I'll be back tomorrow with another face,
