"Willie, Mr. Peanut and Oscar Meyer", oil 8 x 10 SOLD
The photo below is from a friend of a friend. Paul Carr is the owner of these three dachshunds. Willie, far left is now in Heaven ( I know so because all dogs go to Heaven... you've seen the movie right?) But Mr. Peanut (middle) is the one I wanted to give special attention to. Shortly after Paul sent me this photo he shared with me his concerns for Mr. Peanut's health. Mr. Peanut will undergo surgery soon. Prayers for Peanut and Paul.
Paul also shared a sweet story about Willie that I would like to share with you.
"Willie a/k/a Angel, on the left, came to us from a shelter. He was with us for 6 years until his sudden death in November of 2011. As Christmas approached we just couldn't imagine getting through that holiday without our "Angel". On Christmas morning we awoke to see our tropical plant Angel Trumpet, normally dormant at this time of year, had bloomed a flower, even though the rest of the plant remained dormant! Only one explanation for that - an amazing one..."

I just love this painting! I have painted a number of dogs in pick-up trucks and I have a special place in my heart for them. This is so dear. The composition is great and you've really captured the pick up!
