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".
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.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend.
Wonderful painting Carol!! Yes, I can't imagine a home without a dog or cat! It's priceless!!!!ReplyDelete
