Curly Tail and about a dozen other 8 x 10 Acrylics were done in October 2006 when I was living in Malibu. I did them in memory of Casey Bear and Curly Tail, both of whom died in August 2006. I had adopted Casey on January 29, 2005 and her brother, Curly Tail, shortly thereafter on February 23, 2005 from a shelter in Providence, then drove with them back home to California. They were both elderly when I adopted them, reportedly nine years old.

When I first met Casey and Curly, you could tell immediately how loving and well behaved they both were - but their family of nearly a decade didn't have time any more for either of them and left them at a city shelter to either live out their lives in the small cages with the hard cement floors, be separated not just from the only family they had ever known, but also from each other - or be euthenized if nobody cared to adopt a pair of nine year old dogs.
