Nancy, Patsy, Ellen and Red Dog is a mixed media production. I used ink, pastel, acrylic and charcoal on canvas textured paper. The original painting was just auctioned for charity recently.
This work was also inspired by the _’Legend of Red Dog aka The Pilbara Wanderer’, as is ‘Where is Red Dog’.
Red Dog was an adventurous dog who seemed to belong to an entire community.
When his soulmate John died, Red Dog searched for him for the rest of his days, that’s loyalty for you! This painting depicts the time Red Dog’s search for John took him all the way from the dusty outback to Cottesloe Beach, with the girls from his hometown hot on his tail……
If you look closely you can see the tips of Red Dog’s ears way out past the breakers!
