THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Seeing a black dog has long since been an omen of death. The Black Dog painting shown here features a disembodied face petting the dog--almost cradling it. This could signify the artist's ability to cope with the idea of death, as the expression on the face is rather neutral with perhaps just a hint of despair. This painting uses red colors on the top half near the face, seeming to symbolize a passion the artist has for life, while the black dog is surrounded by tranquil blues and greens to denote the peace that comes with death.
