This is my first painting for a series of paintings I will paint in the next few weeks. The theme of this series is Dog and is inspired by the rabies outbreak in my state Sarawak (Malaysia Borneo). The outbreak is getting serious with 22 areas are declared rabies-affected areas. The outbreak claimed its fifth victim when a 52-year-old man died on Sunday. He was bitten by a dog in May. Four children had died from the outbreak.
The local veterinary authorities are doing their best to vaccinate as many dogs as possible to control the outbreak. This include offering free rabies vaccination for dogs in the affected areas. I have been very cautious and hardly bring my kids outdoors since the outbreak started. We avoided places where they are known to have stray dogs.
I am submitting this painting for the STEEMARKET ART CONTEST under painting category. I know the competition is going to be fierce but like I said in my previous post, participating in contests is one good way to find like-minded people in Steemit.
