This painting is part of my Witness Project
. This pit bull puppy did not even have a name. So the shelter gave him a number. They guessed he was approximately 4 months old. Nothing was known about him. He was killed at the shelter in January 2011. Rest in Peace.
I choose to bear witness for the all pit bulls who did not make it out of the shelters. They are more than a number or a statistic. I paint their portraits to put a face on this shame.
It is emotionally challenging to create these paintings. It is not easy to look at their faces, but I ask you please do not look away. Bear witness. Remember these dogs.
