I painted this commission piece before I traveled in July.  It was a surprise birthday gift so I am just now posting it.  Princess was the childhood dog of a friend that is my age.  His wife was thoughtful enough to  have me paint it for him.  I am actually listening to "Where the Red Fern Grows" right now.  I read it years ago but it is fun listening to it again.  All about a boy sacrificing and saving to buy two coon dogs.  We probably all have one or two dogs that were extra special in our history.
This is painted on an 11 x 14".


  1. I bet they love it! I think every home should have at least one dog at some time. They have so many wonderful gifts they bring to a home; love, warmth, laughter, spontenaity (hmmm spelling difficulty), and memories.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Wonderful painting Carol!! Yes, I can't imagine a home without a dog or cat! It's priceless!!!!
