Toronto Outdoor Art Fair


Dimitrios Ikonomou
My old neighbor kept his poor dog chained up in the backyard, rarely cleaning the dog's space. The dog would howl through the night, lonely and in pain. I couldn't handle it, and would stay up nights on the verge of tears. I couldn't confront the dog's owner; he was violent and an alcoholic. So I called the police, animal services, local vets; no one helped. The best I could do for the dog was paint this. In painting it, I realized how much I also needed saving at that time in my life.
