Sweet Smile by Anne Zoutsos

Sweet Smile by Anne Zoutsos - 7" x 5..75" (approx) oil on hardboard/masonite

I think that most of us who love dogs will smile to themselves when they see the laughing, smiley face of the dog in this painting. How happy he looks and delighted with life. Not to worry, he is happy and much loved but it could have easily been so different as this dog was saved from death by a matter of just a few days. Every time I write something like this I can hardly believe it - the thought that such a sweet, lovely dog could so nearly have been wiped off the face of the earth - for what? Had he just become too much a nuisance to bother with?

I feel very strongly that it is important for those of us who care, to try and make up for the wrongs done by others and if you're not interested in purchasing a painting at the moment, please consider dipping into your pocket and helping a deserving charity. A 10% donation will be made to Old Dog Haven once this painting is sold and perhaps you might like to have a look at their website here - Old Dog Haven - they really do so much to help dogs in their golden years have the sort of lives they deserve.


This painting is straight off the easel and will need to dry for several days before it can be shipped
