They were my favorite dogs.

I just didn't expect they are here again. Because I am an artist, and is able to bring them into life by painting. Something that only painting can do. I will keep up making the piece like this one.

Year of the Dog 2018
11/10/2017

I made several Dog drawings on decorated paper. These are just for small gift for customers who visited my exhibition.

Next year, 2018 is the Year of the Dog in the twelve zodiac signs. This is originated in China. In Japan, we follow this calender as part of customs.

One of the visiters really wanted to have one of the drawings, because her friend's dog just passed away. I just gifted the drawing and she showed the best thanks during the exhibition. This is something that only the piece, art can provide.
