Nice to Meet You

6x8 acrylic on gessobord

Dogs are so much fun to watch.  They almost always first greet each other, nose to nose, then they get to the personal stuff...sniffing each other's butts.  Every day I wish I could understand what these wonderful creatures are thinking.  I captured these two greeting each other last May at Kailua Beach.  They proceeded to have a lovely time romping and splashing in the waves together.

Autumn Reflections

8x6 acrylic on gessobord

I painted this for this week's DPW Fall challenge.   I had planned on painting a doggy beach scene, but when I saw the photo Carol Marine posted for the challenge, I couldn't resist changing my plans!  Happy fall everyone!

Come Play With Me

8x6 acrylic on gessobord

How can you refuse a face like this!  Tomorrow I get to play with the dogs at our local shelter.  I love the ones that come running up to me with a slobbery ball in their mouths and a big, wide, happy grin.

Beach Buddies

It brings me so much joy painting dogs playing in the water.  After the terrible events in Las Vegas, I felt the need to share something simple and joyful.  Spread love, not hate.
