David Eustace - Worried About Charlie
The ultimate question surrounding this piece is… who is Charlie? It could be the dog and maybe the man feels bad about the collar, of course it would be in the dogs interest, not that he’d know that at the time as he feels sorry for himself and resents the restrictive choker. Then again there is the thought that Charlie could perhaps be the man and maybe it’s not guilt he feels but sadness.
The formal dress is from the military perhaps? The black tie… has he been to a funeral? In that case maybe the dog is not being resentful of his own situation but sympathetic towards his owner. Whichever way you see it yourself ultimately this picture is about compassion.
