Walking with Sooty who is an 'imaginary' dog created by Karen Bates Naive British Contemporary Painter Karen Bates b1964. A published writer who has lived a varied life.... She has been a civil servant, qualified hypnotherapist and life coach. She wrote successful books about her life in in France but recently moved back to England. "After a holiday in Northumberland and visiting Holy Island of lindasfarne I had an epiphany. I bought a picture in a gallery and got talking to the 16 year old manning the shop and told her I had always wanted to paint. In her dead pan youthfulness and looking at me as a silly old woman she asked ‘so why don’t you’ and that was it - I saw myself through her eyes and thought what is stopping me? What have I got to lose? I gave up my job and started painting... I paint with my emotions and usually I have someone in mind while I paint. We also lost our dog at the same time I was having a mastectomy and so it was a double whammy and neither of us have been able to give our hearts to another dog since. Hence my sidekick imaginary dog Sooty appeared! I would pretend we had a dog with us when we were walking on the beach..." This will be delivered with a white frame that measures 16inches x 12inches
