RoxyHere is another of my doggie acquaintances…Roxy.  She came to visit me a couple of weeks ago with her person, Amanda, who grew up next door.  Did you ever see such a sweet face, or eyes that were more like bright little buttons……or a wonkier pair of ears. Sometimes I get real lucky and she gets doggie-sat by me.  Looking for that to happen any time!

Spirit Ponies Trotting

Tonight’s painting is another of my Spirit Pony series.  I found some photos of gathering the ranch horses for branding, and have been using them as inspiration for these little pieces.  I need to look at the photo in order to get the horses legs right.  I know they only have 4 legs, but when they run, it get complicated and if I don’t draw them right,  they soon lose all resemblance to running horses.  To add some whimsy I’m painting them funky colours and scenarios.  It’s fun, and a playing artist is a happy artist.
