I wanted to paint this beautiful sheltie and her sister the moment I saw them.  Absolutely gorgeous dogs.

Newsletter
I just sent my newsletter showing the ugly stages of a painting.  One of the reasons I don’t like painting in public is that my paintings will go through all sorts of really ugly stages and I hate for people to see this, but I have been asked ….

I can totally see a dress made out of feathery strips of fabulous soft fabric that flutters when a person made the slightest movement.  Wouldn’t that be a hoot to wear?  I actually hate to shop so don’t have a lot of nice clothes but I do like to dress up in pretty things!

I did a painting a week or so ago of three birds (budgies) called “Harmonizing” and really liked it so I wanted to do it a little larger.  Susan and Charley gifted me a 12″ x 24″ canvas which I thought would be perfect for a line of birds.

The name “Be Yourself” is a reflection of the one bird facing away.  He is acting a little different and looks a little different from everyone else.  I happen to think this is a good thing.

This Boykin Spaniel’s name is Mocha Ridge Tula Roux.  Is that a great name or what?  She is still a puppy at two years of age.

I’d like to thank Cassandra Fildey for permission to paint from her photograph.  Of course, the coloring has been modified  🙂

This is a painting of “Ruby” a Boykin Spaniel.   I used a photograph of Lloyd and Kelly Forehand as reference for this painting.  Thank you for sharing such a great photo!

This sweet dog had a sesame seed on her nose in the photo that I used.  How adorable is that?  I can just imagine Ruby sharing a bagel with a friend and that puts a smile on my face!

He may be little but he has a big heart and personality!  It’s funny how some very small dogs don’t know how small they are.  This little guy isn’t lacking confidence.

Thanks to Deborah Peterson for the photo reference of her little Chihuahua.

This is a friend’s constant companion.  “Sunny” is a quiet and sweet dog.  She was a shelter dog and the guess to her parentage is springer spaniel/border collie.  I absolutely adore the patterning on her nose and asked to take her photo about a month ago.
