A puppy is at the cornerstone of this painting depicting him sleeping next to a pair of western boots. His tiny head is resting on the left boot, while other essential pieces of a cowboy’s apparel can be seen in the background. Everything in this scene seems to be standing still and this illusion of motionlessness is further enhanced by the artist’s choice for earth tones.
Even though the tiny dog’s fur is black and white, these colors are the ones that are the most visible in the painting. The different shades of brown serve the purpose of drawing attention on the protagonist of this image, while the boots, saddle and lasso are reduced to the status of accessories complementing the decor.
