Faithful Companion

Notes: This sad looking pup, entitled Treuer Weggefärte (Faithful Companion), was painted by Polish artist Mariola Wower.  It wouldn't surprise me if you haven't heard of her.  What I think will surprise YOU is how she painted this dog.  In 1992, she was in a car accident that left her paralyzed from the neck down.  She took up painting in 1995, holding the brush in her mouth!  I have two working hands and I can't draw much more than stick figures.  You can see a few more of her paintings here, as well as read a bit more about her or even purchase a print.
