Charlie belongs to an Atlanta friend.  I met his Mom at an Atlanta art workshop with Tim Horn several years ago. We became fast friends because we were both so out of our element.  It was a plein air workshop so I mostly walked around with no clue what to do. (Not because of the lack of direction by Tim. )I finally chose to paint an old shed close to where Beth was painting. I set up my cheap French easel that Jerry's Art sent me by mistake. They told me just to keep it because it was so worthless.  Anyway, as I prepared to draw and paint the shed I promptly tipped the easel and palette on to my jeans. (It was the best work I did all weekend.) Even though I was so bad I still learned a lot that weekend from Tim.  And...I met Beth and another friend, Jenny.

Beth invited me to visit her in Colorado this past August.  Charlie went on all the hikes with us and to visit the cow pasture each morning.  He is the perfect little dog. I wanted to thank Beth for inviting me on such a fun trip.  This is painted on a 12 x 12 x 2" canvas.
