It's been a while since I added to my Walkies series of ACEOs and I thought I would do one of Lennox, who, regular readers of my blog will know, has become the unfortunate poster dog for all that is wrong with Breed Specific Legislation.
He lost his fight against Belfast City Council's decision to put him down for 'looking' like a pit bull. Today was the last day his family could lodge a fresh appeal based on an error in law. At this point, I don't know if they've been able to, but I wanted to mark this day with a tribute to this wee dog and the love he has inspired in people all over the world.
I wanted to depict him running free outdoors where he hasn't been in over 18 months. There is a poem called The Rainbow Bridge which inspired the background to this painting, although even now, at the last chance saloon, I am hoping for a miracle for this wee dog and that he won't be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge just yet.
I'm linking to Paint Party Friday as always - my favourite group of artists and creatives online.
