Theoni was a wonderful dog for me to draw, because she looks very much like a dog we used to have ourselves ...our dog Luka. We fell in in love with Luka in 1999 in Sougia, Crete (Greece) and she traveled home with us to The Netherlands by car at the end of our holiday. Luka was a much loved member of our family until she died from an unidentified illness in 2008.
This picture's Theoni lived in the streets of Santorini until she was brought to the Santorini animal shelter. She was one of the lucky dogs that found a home in Germany soon afterwards.
This drawing of Theoni will be featured in the 2014 calendar I am making. When it is ready, you will be able to place orders through my Facebook page www.facebook.com/SusanBrinkmannArt, and also here.
All earnings from sales will go to the Santorini shelter.
