A cozy fire in the studio on a cold day, and a pretty dog stretched out companionably on the hearth rug are beautiful things! Yes, there really is a fire going (electric), it just didn't show up all that well in the photo.
Animals and painting animals have always been a major focus of my life. There have always been dogs -first Collies and now Shelties, and they live peacefully with our very self-assured cat. For many years, our lives were enriched by a wonderful Morgan whom we miss very much.
There is nothing I would rather do than spend my days surrounded by our pets and painting animals in watercolor, colored pencil, and acrylic.
