This painting was originally created in 2009 after the passing of our beloved Gold Retriever, Bailey. As time goes on, sadly, new members have reached the bridge and are being added to the canvas along with their unique characters. A feline companion in October 2013 then another canine in March of 2015. Then with the passing of two English Setter companions within a day apart in March of 2016, I decided to add their characters to the canvas along with revitalizing the colours of the rainbow and rebuilding the bridge itself.
The beauty of this creation is that there is no true perspective, no right or wrong. The companions on this visual are portrayed to reflect who they were and what they loved.to do during their short time with us here on earth.
2013; White "Kitty" snuggled up to Bailey cause Kitty liked Bailey. Gryphon in the water is just there causing trouble as he has not yet crossed over the bridge. 2015; Lil' Belle having fun with her frisbee. 2016: Sheriff Cole and Macie, an Advanced Butterfly Catcher (ABC)!
Every colour of the rainbow applied to the palette.
