Sharon Hodges: "Dogs of War", 30x40x2

Fabulous niece Tara recently sent a link of interest...seems that our military men and women often encounter abandoned, starving, or otherwise mistreated animals while serving their missions abroad. Understandably, the military does not encourage the bonds that inevitably develop and does not allow transport of these companion animals on military equipment. That said, the military personnel often develop deep, loving bonds with these dogs and cats, and do not want to leave them behind when their tours are over. International transportation of animals is a costly and paperwork laden endeavor, beyond the means of most of us; however, the SPCA International has set up a program to assist our troops in bringing their animals home to the USA. If interested, take a look at their site and click on the "Operation Baghdad Pups" button. Anyway the stories on that site inspired this painting. When sold, 50% of the proceeds will be donated in the buyer's name to this project. If interested in purchasing this painting, please use the button below. $900. + s/h. No need to frame, as this is painted on gallery canvas and finished on the sides. This painting will be shown at the 7th Annual Cedars Open Studio Tour on Saturday, Nov 21, 10-6...hope to see you there! To see more of my paintings, please visit my BLOG. Thanks for viewing my work.
