Day 4 - Ceci Pas une Chew Toy

For some bizarre reason this painting made me think of  Magritte's "Ceci n'est pas une pipe".  Miss Mully is just sitting there chewing on her tennis ball  - squeezing all the yucky tennis ball juices out of it. It is not a chew toy but it has the essence of one.  Very existential for this morning.  So continuing with profound thoughts here is  a quote from Magritte  "We must not fear daylight just because it almost always illuminates a miserable world". Mully would disagree - she would say let's enjoy the sun. As long as there are tennis balls, dog cookies and hugs, life is good.

I know dogs shouldn't chew tennis balls and that it wears down their teeth.  You go ahead  and try to get it out of her mouth.  Good luck.


  1. Love it, Suzy! You've captured the spirit of a happy dog!

    Isn't it amazing how happy they are with thing more than a tennis ball as if it was all there was in the world!

    Great painting! Nice colors and brushwork! Bravo!

  2. Thanks you must be a fellow dog lover

  3. Great painting! Love the feeling of it.
