I've spent a lot of time trying to find out some information on the dog. Can't find a hair.
I have a "painting" of the family dog made by one of my grand daughters that also appears "flat" and just suggestive. She isn't Picasso yet, wish that were so, but there is time.

I plunged on. No one ever spoke to me again for the rest of the seminar/semester. Our final exams were given one on with with "the Professor" who asked me what I gained from the class.

I answered that someone probably paid him good money to compose/paint a neo-classically themed picture and someone else wanted something with a little adventure to it...you know Occam's Razor - the simplest answer being the most likely correct.
