Did I ever tell you how much I love dogs?

I say this to my husband at least one time a day.  His response is always, “No, I don’t think you’ve ever mentioned that.”

It has kind of become a joke between us.

But it is really true.  I really, really, really love dogs!!!  I want to pet and socialize with every dog I see! Big or small, doesn’t matter.

“A Vos Pieds” (At Your Feet) 11 x 14 Soft Pastel on Sanded Paper


This past summer while I was in Europe, I checked out the European dogs as much as the architecture. landscapes, cities and museums!  I love the fact that dogs are everywhere!  They are at all the outdoor cafes!  And following their owners down the street…unleashed!  It is so crazy wonderful how they are considered members of society and included in everything they do there.

While walking by an outdoor cafe in France, I spotted this dog waiting patiently, while his human companions ate their meal.  I was missing my doggy, Molly, so much while I traveled.  And when I saw this sweetie, I needed to restrain myself from kissing his precious face.  He was so sweet that I had to take some photos of him, full well knowing this would become a painting.

I so wish I had asked his family for their contact information.  I would love to know who they are, so I may send this painting to them.

If you would like a painting done of your best friend, I would be happy to discuss with you what I can do.  Please visit here for more information or email me here.

    This is such a realistic painting. I am in awe of your skills. I’m so glad you shared this for our challenge this week at Inspiration Avenue. I love dogs too, and you’ve certainly captured the essence of this one.

    He looks comfortably uncomfortable – certain his human can’t leave without him. Very nice dog-level view.
