Shih-tzu

"Lola"
5 x 5 inches, Oil on board
NFS
Spring is definitely turning into Summer quick. I love this time of year, it's just hot enough but not uncomfortable. I visited an old friend today. I used to live near her so it was nice to drive by my old home which hadn't changed in the six years since I've moved away. We talked for about two hours trying to fill the hours with all that has been happening in these past couple of years. Things change, things don't change; children grow older and away, new pets, pets we miss, pounds ganined and lost, new diets that work and haven't, so much to say and too little time.
I must not let too much time before we get together again.

Judy, I think these animal portraits are your "thing". All of them really stand out. They have bold, clean color and you paint them so up close that it makes the viewer feel like we are holding it. Very nice!!!

Beautiful; I love the little pink tongue and the triangle of green on the left, and everything else here :-)

I thought I was on your follower list, I've added myself (again?), hmmm.
