Doggy Paintings



3 dogs are better than one ...

Right?  Friends of mine comissioned me to do portraits of their dogs - the one they keep now and the ones who have already passed away. Like a little family pet gallery for the house -  fun project which i had never done before. These 3 characters are no "fancy" dogs like the puggies in the post below, but mixed breeds, one of them being picked up on a beach in portugal.  Below, you see a photo of Mina, the middle dog. Wich one of these is your favorite?

  10. Oh this dog is soooooooo CUTE!!!!! Oh Martina! Dear heart, you are still not feeling yourself? Well, I am much better, but I think that now I have allergies! AND my eyes are giving me problems. My eyelids are red and puffy and itchy, but my eyelashes are falling out!!!!!!!!! I must go to the doctor for this.

    I am feeling energetic, but anxious to finish this school year. Though it has been a mildly warm winter, it has been exhausting and full of sickness. I wish you SPEEDY RECOVERY and many many days of bright sunshine and ART !!! YOU ARE SOOOO GOOD!

    HUGS MY DEAR FRIEND! Anita
