"Spot's Sanctuary" is a 16x16" original abstract oil painting on vintage book pages of sheet music and dictionary pages. The canvas has thick 1.5" sides so no need to frame. The sides are gold leafed. White, blue, black, grey, and navy impasto lines fill the painting with hints of gold leaf and circles with gold leaf. The dictionary pages have illustrations of different breeds of dogs.
The canvas has a shadowbox inside, displaying a beautiful ceramic blue white and gold whippet dog figurine with a gold collar and a big gold spot on the dog's back on a blue pedestal.
The canvas has a wire for easy hanging and is signed by the artist, Dorothy S. Collier.
