A Girl and Her Dog

My granddaughter and my granddog are funny to watch. Tazz the dog was in the family first. The kids came and I always wondered what the dog thought about all that. My granddaughter has painted the dogs toenails when she slept. She has tried to dress Tazz but the dog won’t have it. I’ve seen the dog just get up and leave the room. I’m sure she was thinking “these little people are just too loud.”

I saw my granddaughter trying to get Tazz’s attention. She went nose to nose trying to get the dog to do something. I took a picture. I see another painting and here it is.

Nose to Nose

A Man and His Dog

This is a commissioned piece. I never show others a completed piece before the person who commissioned it has seen it. The client provided the cigar box and a photo. It was their favorite family dog who is no longer with them. This painting will be a birthday gift to her husband.

I like that I can make someone happy with what I do. I love to paint; I love that inner warm feeling I get when I see their response to what I’ve painted.
