"Watchful Eyes" by Vonnie Kohn, oil painting of dogs with western setting

Have you ever observed how much our animals love us without strings attached? My family was entering a Tex-Mex restaurant one evening when I noticed all the patrons looking out (seemingly at us) a large window. As my eyes followed their stares, I noticed a pickup to my immediate right with two dogs in the back, guarding the saddles, blankets, bridles. They were being completely obedient to the command, "stay." When we entered the restaurant, I found two cowboys, wearing their full regalia, complete with boots and spurs, standing in line. I didn't have my camera at the time, but I remembered.....two years later, with the right setups, I completed this painting. I still remember the obedience of the border collie, the other, an australian cowdog. I could just envision those dogs waiting patiently in a pasture while their master was hunting, or working a fence line, or locating a young calf. What do you think? This painting has found a new home, but there are others. Please visit my website for more information:
