This is a blog friend's dog. She posts about her life and her art, her cooking, her beautiful surroundings on her blogs. Please visit her here-Eggs in my pocket, A Needle in my Hand
and here-Yesteryear Embroideries
Her name is Kathleen, and she has this extremely cute dog named Sophie.
Kathleen posted some photos of Sophie, and I asked her permission to copy them. I knew I wanted to do a painting of this dog. Finally, I did it.
There's got to be a brave heart in this doggie. She lives with rattlesnakes and awful looking spiders. And you can tell, she is a dog that knows how to smile. I just love her.
Of course, there's a few flaws with the painting-but I am happy that I could capture that smile, and the way her ears are crinkled. You know how they do it-when a dog is happy and they are just tuned into some kind of doggie-bliss....
Thank you Kathleen, for letting me paint Sophie.
Give her a big hug for me...
