Korea for the past 10 years and the 3 paintings here mark his return to the Danger Dog project.  He was a sport about restocking paints and brushes after all these years.   Those 10 years of remittance work gave his son a chance to become a civil engineer, his daughter to finish 12th form and his wife to run a small departmental store.

Mozzarella the Papillion mix by Shree

Mozzarella, the Papillion mix.   Her portrait by Shree returns to Shree's earlier style that I found so charming when I first came across him in 2008.  He always placed his dog in Elysian fields and was the only artist I have worked with that already had existing Beware of Dog signs in his shop.
