Sirius

0.00

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky, marking the head of the constellation Canis Major. Many cultures associate this star with canines. The reasons for its association remain a mystery. In many cosmologies the dog in the sky carries the light in it’s mouth. The heliacal rising of Sirius in the pre-dawn eastern hemisphere marked the hottest, “dog days” of summer to the ancient Greeks. This painting is a meditation on the co-evolution of dog and mankind, an invitation to contemplate our ancient friendship.
