Opus 415, “Dog in Space”



This seemingly chaotic picture began with a likeness of Tonton  (Cano’s dog) wearing glasses and smoking a cigar as a joke. Once he reduced the image it was applied as a collage surrounded by floating objects shown as brown shapes set against a ‘refreshing green’ background.  Together with thosewispy yellow-orange beings circling below, and rising smoke rings floating above, it is meant to be playful and light-spirited.  Even the frame brightens the overall appearance with a white mat nestled inside a softly-gilded modernist encasement.
