Oil on canvas panel, 12x12

By David Munford, to be donated to the Sullivan County shelter in Rock Hill, N.Y. 

Julie, writes the talented David Munford, is a 5-year-old, lovable foxhound mix - so lovable, in fact, that she has found a home with one of the workers at the Sullivan County animal shelter in Rock Hill, N.Y.  David's sweet painting will be a gift to Julie's new owner.

This is the second of three paintings that David has made for the project. He has painted for many years, and these days, when he's not painting for the project, he spends much of his time painting plein-air landscapes.

I really love the look in Julie's eyes in this painting. The Sullivan County shelter describes itself as "a place for hope," and to me, David has capture the look of a dog who wants to hope, in spite of everything.

David is represented by the Wallkill River School Gallery in Montgomery, N.Y.
