BLACK HOUND TAVERN by artist Annette Hassell
Acrylic on linen, 16 x 12", framed to 17.5 x 13.5"
About the piece: I was thinking about how since humans are scarcer for now during the pandemic, animals are getting braver, and I pictured these guys taking over the tavern. So, would you back away slowly or throw the ball? I'd throw the ball and when they chased after it, I'd sneak into the tavern and see if the Guinness tap is still working. Irish Wolfhounds are so huge, but so goofy and fit the concept so well.
