Acrylic, 20" x 16", Sept 2000.
A simple little painting that I made for my daughter. Two dogs in a UFO! The dogs are modeled on our old family pet Arf, who I also painted into Stun City, Arf and the Saucer, and The Hollow Earth. Here’s a description of Arf from my novel, The Hollow Earth:
“He had the noble profile and the feathery legs of a retriever. His legs and ruff where white, but his head and body had the tawny coloring of a collie. I’d grown up talking to him like a person. He had a way of moving his eyebrows and his feathery tail so expressively that I often felt he understood me.”
