art and observations from a dog living in Portugal
by Ruca Cão & Krista Wells
About the Book
Ruca is a street dog and artist living in a quiet village on the south coast of Portugal. This is a collection of entries from his illustrated journals, curated by his dog-loving Canadian friend Krista Wells.
See the world through Ruca's eyes as he navigates the cobbled streets and rugged cliff tops of his life. His perspective is fresh, four-legged, and often funny.
Each page is lavishly illustrated using a variety of techniques including pen and ink, watercolour, coloured pencil, photography, relief printing and more.
Krista Wells is an artist who splits her time between Nova Scotia, Canada and Portugal. She draws, paints, sculpts, photographs, makes relief prints and mosaics. You can see more of her work at Art Lab Studios & Gallery in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia or check out her activity at www.kristawells.ca.
