A Walk in the Snow by Mark Ulriksen

The snowfall last week may have fallen short of the “storm of the century” or “snowmageddon” predictions,  at least in New York City, but for city dwellers and their canine companions it was enough for a snow day, as portrayed in this week’s cover, by Mark Ulriksen.

In his recently published book, “Dogs Rule Nonchalantly,” Ulriksen explains his predilection for painting man’s best friend: “Dogs give you their undivided attention,” he writes. “They watch your every gesture, read your every emotion, listen attentively to every word you say—until they hear the rustle of a bag of chips being opened.” Or, in the winter after a snowstorm, until you open the door to go outside.
