painted scenarios in black and white acrylic featuring a dog in a veterinary  collar

Ghost, 2014 re 2017, (Dog Studies, Medical Collar), acrylic on canvas, 30" x 24", Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis.
Final version. The translucent quality of Dino's medical collar was the spark for this group portrait. In the composition his pale ghostly visage is countered by the dark silhouettes of Mookie and Doug.

DINO was hit by a car and his tail was eventually removed. These paintings were inspired by the medical collar designed to keep him from fiddling with the injury.

The collar seemed to amplify the intimate interactions between our dogs. It tickled me, generating imaginary conversations between the dogs in my head.
