Lady’s Successful Story

Being all alone, in a shelter, can’t be a very pleasant experience for a sociable creature. Unfortunately, it happens more often than needed, for all the wrong reasons.

Some love the idea of a puppy, but can’t handle the fully grown dog. Others adopt a dog only to fill an empty space in their life. Some simply don’t have the time for a dog, and still, they want one. When it gets too hard and busy, regardless the reason, the sad conclusion is that the dog ends up in a shelter, wondering what happened.

Lady has been my shelter dog for the past 2 months. She arrived from a very sad situation, from a home which put her out of balance. Owner with emotional issues and being abused as a puppy equals unstable dog. Unfortunately this put her chances for adoption down to zero.

Gaining the confidence of a damaged dog is an amazing moment. A dog who doesn’t trust people, is a dog which can’t find a home. This is why all my effort was put, during the dog walks, into bringing back the pup she really is.

Going from walking in circles around the shelter in order to build up confidence, to walking longer distances, to walking with multiple people, to playing fetch, Lady went from a fearful dog, to an amazing pup, goofy and happy, ready for a new home.

The day finally arrived, and I’m so happy to know she got the loving home she deserves. To celebrate her success, I had to paint one of our favorite moments together. As she always loved to climb on me and be held, I think this picture says everything about our beautiful connection. 🙂

Thank you for being my doggy for 2 months and good luck in your life’s journey, precious pup!

Breaking Free

As I said before, painting portraits is quite a difficult task for me. You have to capture the right expression, emotion and the organic feel of a human being. Including all of them in a brush stroke, makes you rethink every move you make.

However, painting nonmaterial things, such as feelings and emotions can be quite a challenge.

Today I decided to paint a human emotion, for the first time. We all feel joy, anger, sadness in a different way. But if we would have to represent them through an image, I think sending the message out there can prove to be hard.

We have no idea where to begin, but when we breath and look inside us, we can see the light and colors. Our minds guide us through the process.

We are slaves to our own minds

Breaking free starts from inside us. Breaking free starts with choosing to see the light within us. Leaving darkness behind, and following our inner light, is what gets us on the right path, in a soft and gentle way, like a butterfly’s delicate touch.
