“Walkies! What do you mean again?”

Pam Walker, 50

During World Lockdown it gave me one rare and valuable commodity- Time! Time to reflect, time to think, time to be creative and use this opportunity to be positive. To make it so much more enjoyable and somewhat a personal, secret escape from the horrid issues going on in the outside world, I purposely chose a ‘subject’ that I love and love to paint – Dogs! I wanted to portray the effects our human lockdown had on THEIR world. Dogs communicate a huge amount of feelings through their eyes so I tried to capture in her ‘portrait’ eyes expressing both her love of all the new increased attention but at the same time questioning the reasons why?
