This is my girl and I love her to pieces. My daughters Victoria and Veronica named her Kisses. It's a cute name I have to admit and everyone smiles when I say her name. She sits right by my side or under my desk when I paint. She loves to meet and greet any one and everyone who comes down the street. When my kids were riding the bus in elementary school the two of us would stand outside waiting for the bus to arrive and when the bus driver opened the door, Kisses would jump on the bus to visit with all the school children!
My kids have been asking when are you going to paint Kisses for the Dog Challenge? "You CAN'T leave her out!" So I thought this would be a good time to add her in. There's so much I could say about this precious almost 12 year old golden retriever and perhaps I will edit this blog post in the future. But for now, it's late, really late, past 1:30am and I'm beat! Ready for bed...
I have joined in with over 240 other artists on fellow artist Leslie Saeta's blog. click here to link to the challenge.
Thanks to everyone who have sent me cute dog photos! I'm having a great time painting and hearing about all these sweet companions.
If I get to the end of the challenge and I haven't painted your dog. I will try to continue the challenge until all the dogs are painted and only one dog per owner. I might not be able to paint one everyday... I know I'll need a break at the end of this challenge, but I will keep the dog series going.
Each painting is painted on either 8 x 10 inch or 8 x 8 inch canvas board with quality oil paints and varnished. The price is $140 + (shipping and CT sales tax). Unframed.
with much gratitude,
