During one of our art gallery visits, a painting of a little dog caught our attention. My husband and I were drawn to the painting because he seems very cute and was painted in a vibrant red background.
A young chap suddenly approached us. He is Francesco Lietti, the artist himself. The painting is titled “My Dog”. The inspiration of it came from his 15-year old fox terrier. The artist is a cheerful and friendly Italian who hails from Lecco.
Being a dog-lover myself, I fell in love with the painting. To have a dog in England entails quite a responsibility. Probably, this painting is the answer to my desire of having a pet dog (only that it doesn’t bark or wag its tail!). This may not be a Picasso but it is very special to me – my husband gave this to me as a gift. I named him Cucciolo (Italian for puppy).
