I love greyhounds so much. Wonderful symbolism here! Especially since it coincides with a new year coming. We're all hoping for a better future.

Great to see your latest work, as always. I especially like the hands and the white hounds face. Sadly our lurcher rescue is full to bursting with dogs needing homes this Christmas.

Beautiful colour handling Sandra, takes my breath away.

I really love your paintings - they are some of my all time favorites. The emotion they convey is amazing - have a great Christmas!

I can see the uncertainty of a rescued animal in the greyhound's eyes.

Knowing the fate of greyhounds at around 5-6 years old, I looked for one, but ended up with a rescue lurcher with, I believe, greyhound in him.

Love the dreamy dark atmosphere of this painting. Your work is so beautiful!

You have a bit of the Liepke thing going on, but in your own way, and more feminine, quite love this new work and the next. T-
