Reflection: Although this work of art looks simple in it’s entirety, the deeper meaning is only revealed when you look to the soul of the painting. The eye in the painting is the most important part of this piece, revealing the true meaning behind the creation. When you look into the dog’s eyes you see the happiness he possesses even though he is surrounded in such a chaotic, crowded and industrial place and has nothing with him. In my perspective, we as humans are responsible for creating and keeping our own happiness.
