Dog in the blanket

Still painting or at least trying to learn how to paint dogs and cats.  One of the more fanciful painting encounters was with a waitress named Bridget.  She sent me a photo of her dog to paint.  I think she wanted a bag, but instead she got a painting.  It took me a while to figure out who had sent me the photo.  But I enjoyed the creating the painting (in watercolor) and it’s possible that the waitress still thinks we named our puppy after her.  Maybe so, one never knows.

ANway, below is the original photo and the end painting.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
