January 19th Our Jack of Hearts is Gone

My daughter Morgan lost her faithful dog Jack at about 2:30 on the morning of January 18th, 2010. He had canine Hemangiosarcoma, which is a rare, highly invasive cancer which remains hidden and without symptoms until it is too late for treatment. Morgan rescued Jack in Austin in 2000. He had been her constant companion for almost ten years

January 17

Jack was rescued from a kill shelter in Texas.
My daughter adopted him and discovered he had been abused: he was missing teeth, had battle scars,
heart worms, and a list of neuroses a mile long.
He now lives a life of luxury.
Jack is the iconic American Dog. He's part Dalmatian, English Pointer, Greyhound and Great Dane accidentally molded in to a perfect form. He is an object of beauty and grace, easy on the eyes, and hard on the tender-hearted. My series of paintings called "Jack of Hearts" is dedicated to all essential pets like Jack: you can't breed for them, and money can't buy them. Luck brings them to your door.

Welcome to my blog. Please check back often as I will add new posts as I finish new work.

I had a successful show at the Jung Center, Houston, during the month of December. The exhibition, "Jack of Hearts"was a tribute to Jack, a rescue dog that my daughter adopted from a kill shelter in Texas.
