puppy love

I was giddy the whole time I was painting this longhorn.  I usually start with the eyes when I am painting animals.  If you can capture the life in them it is smooth sailing after that.  He was staring at me with that hound dog look as I painted. This is a large 4 ' x 4' x 2" canvas.
I took this image when I visited Oregon last Fall.  The bluebonnets were added for a Texas slant.  I was juried into the Woodlands Waterway Show in Houston for my animals so that is what I will be exhibiting at the show.


  1. Woodlands...near where a son and family live...and my daughter in law works in the Woodlands. Will you be there for the show and when is it? We are heading down there in a few weeks for a granddaughters presentation event and would certainly stop by if you were going to be there!

    1. Yes Ann. I will be there for the show April 10-12. Would LOVE to see you!

  2. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une autre belle encornée !... je comprends ce que tu pouvais ressentir ! Tu te sentais observée durant ton travail !
    Bravo !
    Gros bisous ♡

  3. He does indeed have that hound dog look! He's beautiful and oh so sweet!
