A friend asked me to do a commission of her friends dog. She had just found out that the dog had cancer and not long to be with us. Just look at that face. How could you not love him.
It definetly was a joy to paint and I believe you can feel his spirit coming through.

I went to Michaels yesterday to pick up a broad brush for working larger paintings and of course you have to wander around and look at all the "stuff" . Stuff to do books with, cook with, make beads and...bags! I LOVE bags. So there hanging on the wall were three canvas bags. I picked up two! Hmm..what will I do with these? Oh Look....Fabric markers...two packages I put in the cart with my two bags and one brush. Today after picking up the bag and putting it back down a bunch of times I thought...why not make a Doodle Lab Bag!!! And so it was made. For the first Doodle Lab Bag I was excited at the whole concept. The size is 12 3/4" x 12" x 7 1/4" . Front and back have doodles and I'm thinking of doodling also on the sides.
You'll find this piece on Etsy today! It's 6" x 6" and just a lovely painting.
Til tommorrow!!! Sheila

Oh yes, I really LOVE painting Labs so that continues but you will also be seeing Caribbean Art too. Let me know what you think..put a Lab in every so often???

Then I just had Tina Turner on. Try not to jiggle and move like she does when you hear her. Throw your hands in the air and really move..however..even though 62 is the new 42, be sure you've been excersizing all along and not just getting back into it. I felt the twinge..now the pain in my lower back..LOL..3 Advils down and hopefully it stops so I can get back to painting.
Check back later to see if I post new work or Im laying on a slab icing my muscles.
Sigh, I better find Beethoven for this afternoon!

Ray here posting for Sheila.
Roger came home today after having two stints placed in his arteries on Tuesday. At first all was good, then all of a sudden he started getting very cold and sweaty.
Sheila quickly took him back to the ER where they are doing a EKG right now (5:30 EST). His blood preasure was fine but his heart rate is all over the place.
Sheila asks for Prayers. She has given so much to so many that please say some extra special prayers for our Roger.
Thursday Morning update:
Team, spoke with Sheila late last night. Roger is being kept in the Hospital over night. Signs point to some type of infection, though we will know more when a good doctor sees him on Thursday. Sheila was not impressed with the ER doctor in the least bit.
Thursday evening update:
Team, Spoke with Sheila at around 7pm EST Thursday. Roger had what is essentially an infection, so he is spending one more night at the Hospital just to be safe. But heart rate was good and blood pressure was fine. Sheila is understandably exhausted.
Friday 1:pm EST
Just got call from Sheila. They are still trying to figure out what the infection is. He is feeling better, but the little bugger won't break. They are in Radiology taking pictures to see if they can better isolate it. Sheila was on her way to get Coffee, I talked her into juice and a bran muffing ;)
As I hear from her I'll be updating this page.

This is our dear friend Ray and his beloved Shaq. Mr. Shaq as we refered to him. He was a regular visitor and Sophie's boyfriend, and she doesn't take to male Labs. Her eyes sparkled when he came through the door. The largest, tallest Lab I ever met, gentle, sweet, a champion field trial dog and now 16 years old. Shaq went to the Rainbow Brige this morning.
Shaq was the subject of many of my Lab paintings. His face was beautiful. I'm attaching Ray's Obituary that he posted on HotLab Rescue awhile ago. He will be in our hearts also. Our sweet Shaq.
Dear Friends of Shaq,
It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that Shaq, my best friend over the last 16 years, has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. He joins my beloved Shasta, Zoe and Nanda waiting for me to join them.
Over the past few days Shaq had trouble lying down and it was clearly painful for him to get down. He had more trouble with his balance and would run into things. Rather then prolong the agony I decided to do what I hope others will do for me one day and help him over the rainbow bridge.
Shaq was born in Montana, He lived an amazing life having been a champion field trial and big air dog. He traveled everywhere with me, including each time I went home to Montana. He loved going to Montana, when we would go over Bozeman Pass he would perk up and get excited. He also loved visiting the cabin in Polaris. Here is a link to his stories. www.shaqtails.blogspot.com
I have known that this day was coming. I had hoped that he could last until after the upcoming Heart of Texas Lab Rescue Fundraiser at The Fairmount Hotel on Nov 7th and make an appearance. But it was not to be. So many were looking forward to seeing him.
I have many wonderful paintings and pictures of my dear Shaq to remember him by. He will live forever in my heart. I will always remember the days he and Shasta would spend swimming at Red Bud Isle.
If you could make a donation to Heart of Texas Lab Rescue in his name he would appreciate it. www.hotlabrescue.org.
Goodbye Dear Friend
