Day 18 Life's a Ball

I have noticed a trend in my series of dog paintings of my golden.  She either has a ball in her mouth or her tongue is sticking out.

As least she is not swearing at me.
I think.

Day 17 Ready for my Close up Darling

It turns out you can get really close to a dog's face and still read it as a dog. It was fun to do but I think I could go even closer and just do the eyes.  So far all the paintings for the 30 day challenge have been vertical and I want to keep it that way because it looks great when they are together in the same format and size but when the challenge is over, I will do a horizontal -  just of eyes.

  Should be fun.

Day 16 In my Shadow

This is another portrait of Sam.  He was just sitting in the shadow of my husband a stranger to him.

There should be a special place in heaven for dogs like Sam.

Day 15 Don't Leave me

You can see him over there and he is getting into the car without you.  It's a tragedy - don't worry he'll be back and you can guilt him into giving you a whole bunch of cookies, but in the mean time it's hard
"Don't leave me"

Day 14 Puppy

This is Mully as a puppy.  In truth, she was a terrible puppy - nobody wanted to be with her because she nipped.  She still does have a few bad habits - walking on the kitchen table, rolling in the mud and bad breath but now we love her madly.

I would like the tv remote back.   Please

Day 13 A very very nice dog

I have a simple definition of what makes a nice dog - one that doesn't scare mine.  I have to admit she is a wuss.  Now I wouldn't care but when she is frightened, someone gets hurt and that is usually me.  She gets scared and jumps on me and bruises usually appear, on me.  
This was a nice dog - they checked out each other's butt,  ran around a bit and separated.  No bruises - a  good day, a nice dog.

Day 12 I'm All Ears

This dog is all abou the ears.  They seem to go in all directions and move constantly as did the rest of her body.  Too cute.
