Dog 30- Winnie!

 I am not sad to say that the 30 in 30  challenge is over- but I am happy to say that I am continuing my dog portraits because I love doing them and I have a lot still on my list to paint- and more arriving daily. Awesome! Thanks so much you guys for getting this thing going and sending me your adorable dogs. Each one has been a joy to paint.

Day 30- The Best Dog in the WORLD ( at least to me!)
because whatever dog I have IS the best Dog in the world!
And All your dogs are the best dogs in the world to you- right? Winnie has a few faults- extremely jealous, prone to fighting, hates sneezing,barks at the vacuum and when we recline in the lazy-boy chair, runs when we try to take her picture ( have to sneak it) sometimes lies in obscene poses ( Im not posting those!) and does not tolerate any conflict in my marriage with my husband- which actually is sort of a good thing sometimes!
Here are a few of the 1,000,000 shots of her I have on my computer,

She is adorable! Beautiful painting - I love those checkerboard tiles. Great bandana, too! And so many great photos! Could she be any MORE comfortable on the big bed in your studio?

This is a wonderful painting of Winnie.
She is so cute and I love the photos of your 'boyfriend' Oliver!
