still sleepy

found on pinterest, believed PD
Henriette Ronner-Knip, "Sleeping Dog."  (Excellent bio of Ronner-Knip here.)  Though she became justly famed for her cat paintings, her technical ability and sympathetic feeling was also well shown when it came to dogs.  No story or props necessary here, only an ordinary dog (as if there were such a thing) at rest.  The rough fur on the nape is perfection.  Sometimes the simplest images are the best.
