Don't Go Breaking My Heart

Don't Go Breaking My Heart - 7" x 5" oil on hardboard/masonite

When I started this painting, I had St Valentine's Day in mind (although this painting won't be dry in time for it to be a gift on that day). Then as I was painting, the title slipped into my mind - and the song has been in my head ever since! It occurred to me that the title of this painting not only relates to a human relationship, but it also says it all regarding the feelings we dog owners have towards our dogs when they become old and frail and we wish we could hang on to them forever.......................
