Leisha comes with a history, not always a happy one, but fortunately with a joyous ending. She and her owner Julie endured a lengthy separation, but were finally reunited. The painting catches her worried expression, typical of Boxers. Even though Julie is not in the painting, I wanted something to symbolize the sense of belonging. Her presence is felt by her clothes in the closet, and especially by her glamorous party shoes on the rug beside the dog.
