The painting captures a young woman, fragile in her solitude, sitting on a set of stairs and accompanied only by her suitcase and her loyal canine companion. There’s a sense of expectation, as if she’s waiting for something or someone to arrive. But the fierce yet protective presence of her dog reassures us that she is not alone and that she will be safe, as if her companion is her guardian angel. “Awaiting” is part of a series that delves into the history of our ancient relationship with dogs and how it reflects our connection to nature. As more and more people are living in urban environments, our relationship with dogs has changed, making them more of a companion than a working animal. This painting serves as a powerful reminder of the unique and special bond between humans and dogs, and the important role they play in our lives. It's a thought-provoking and emotional work of art that will resonate with dog lovers and art enthusiasts alike.
