LAPA is one of this year’s charities, and they have come to the party with this beautiful art they have from a fundraiser they ran previously. All the artworks were inspired by real animals that LAPA helped.
Viktor Miller-Gausa – Delta, 2016
I have chosen not to draw any people here, because people often harm dogs.
Some dogs would move their paws, growl or silently bark in their sleep as if they were running or swimming. My dog, for instance, loves to watch and chase birds. Here are water, earth and air, the three basic elements, in the tranquillity of a dog’s dream. He may be dreaming about a white bird flying over a sleepy morning town or cruising the ocean on a back of a whale.
This little cherub is named Delta. She lives at ‘True Friends’, a shelter in Kaluga. The first time she went in for sterilisation she was found to have a heart problem. The shelter was worried that she would be unable to handle the anaesthesia for the operation to go ahead. Delta would need to be confined in an area away from the males in the shelter if she couldn’t be sterilised, and even then there was a risk, accidents can happen. The vet decided to bring her back in for a check up. Her heart appeared to be doing much better so the operation went ahead. Delta is now patiently waiting for her new family and home to come along, it turns out she likes cats and chewing on palm trees.
