Description Gouache on paper. On honeymoon on the Island of Moorea in French Polynesia, we noticed there was an abundance of stray dogs hanging around the local restaurants and sometimes getting into the resort areas. Being the 'dog person' that I am, of course I had to share my dinner with them whenever they approached our table. Sometimes they would sleep right under the dining table at the Italian restaurant (yes, Italian food truly is universal). I photographed this one and painted him in front of Mt. Mouaroa (commonly known as Shark's Tooth Mountain).
