Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
Delightful! Thank you!
My copy of the painting above has the dog with a ghost-like appearance which made the picture so healing for me after I lost my dog of 15 years in 2014. The ghost-like appearance of the dog in the version I own made me feel that my Shelly was still with me, in another dimension, of course, but still with me. Do you know Riviere's original intent?
I think he was just painting a sympathetic picture. If you look the artist up there are more animal paintings, which the public always responded well to.
