Description The painting is done on stretched canvas using acrylic paints and heavy gesso. Found pieces of German text are collaged into the paintings surface. The painting features a white dog and a black bird. The words Blanc (white) and Noir (black) are written in the lower right hand corner. Predominate colors are blue, red and green. The accents painting throughout the painting mimics these colors. The inspiration for this painting came from a small white pup that was abandoned near my home and was promptly rescued by me and my husband.
