Megaphone Yawn, 2015, Dog Studies, Medical Collar Series, black and white acrylic on black, white, and grey canvas, 24″ x 36″, Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis

Intimate view of two dogs facing toward each other. Doug, the black dog, seems relaxed with an open mouth and pricked up ear. Dino, the white dog, yawns (or howls?) from within his medical collar. The curved collar emphasizes Dino’s vocalization. One of the first compositions in which three values of primer were used to demarcate the space and heighten the high contrasts in the black and white portrait by Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis.
