I painted this painting for a friend who was loosing her beloved companion to poor health and old age. I had gotten to know Keetna over the last few years and he was quite a mellow guy and had a beautiful coat. Keetna was almost 15 years old when I painted him here in his old front yard; he is sorely missed.

I will be part of the California Impressionists show at the Link Gallery from October 11-30 in Cheyenne, Wyoming along with Carole Gray-Weihman and Rich Gallego. The opening reception will be Oct 11, 5-8pm. Associated with the show will be the William Sitting Bull fundraising action. William is also an artist at the gallery. He has recently been suffering from poor health and is in need of a kidney transplant and is without insurance. Because of the urgency the gallery owner has decided to hold a joint opening and auction where Williams and his wife Bonnie will be auctioning their artwork along with some donated pieces from some of the gallery artists. Many of the gallery artists will also donate a percentage of all sales during the show to William's fund. For more information about the show and William's auction please visit the Link Gallery web site at: www.link-gallery.com.
