Mixed media painting of the artist's dachshund, Jess. The dog is pictured sleeping on her back on the right of the painting. She is rendered in browns, ochre, black, red and white. The abstract background incorporates several page fragments of a South African phone book and features a range of colours including yellow, purple, green, blue, red and white. The brushstrokes are very expressive and the paint surface is heavily textured. Anne Holliday often reworks previous paintings and in 2008 this artwork was originally a painting of an insect.
