The Swimmer

30" x 24" on stretched canvas

So..when you get 100 tennis balls what do you do??? You go swimming with them. I took out three, one for each Lab. Sammy usually knows where his is. Out in the yard. Fergus's ball then becomes Sammy's til it also joins the other, in the yard. And yes of course Sammy takes Sophies'. Each afternoon we say, "Sam go find your ball" and he brings one in and we play.

I had fun with clo in this piece. Purples and greens, slashes of white. Enjoy!!

Dog Park Series #2

Wow, after a whole week of feeling crummy I finally got back to work today. It's wonderful!!! Blue, our only cat now, hides out in my studio. Sammy is a hunter and if Blue moves quickly Sam is chasing right behind. There's constant "leave it!" and I think he may be getting the connection. However, as much as love the idea of a studio cat, now I have to watch for cat paws in the palette which will result in cat paws on canvases.

This is Sammy, front and center. He always has the tennis ball. I can only imagine what the others were saying to each other. They are older. The boxer flying in is just a year old and about to give Sam a run for his money.

enjoy!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160248771039&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=006

Florida Flu

See you tommorrow. Sheila, Sophie, Fergus and Sammy
