sweet and beautiful

Not the best reproduction, but I wanted you to see the companion piece to Juan van der Hamen's "Still life with flowers and dog." Here, also from 1625, is another "Still life with flowers and dog," in which a puppy mouths his ball exactly as puppies do.

What a beautiful piece! Love that the dog is a companion to it. Ahh, Flemish art. Funny the work has a contemporary feel to it.

Always enjoy this site, learn lots of new things 'bout our animals!
