This is Marcy. She has been the model of many of my paintings and in the past days has been having problems with her legs. My friends say she has been the sweetest ,loving girl throughout her life and now going through this issue.
As you see her picture today think positive thoughts for her . I've seen miracles happen when people gather. Thanks Sheila
Cynthia and Dennis..this painting is for you.

Could this be the cause of broken tea cups?? The crazed race around the yard only to rip the screens heading for the roof?? This sweet face???
Out of some supplies today so instead of becoming frustrated painted this guy. If you have pets you would like commissioned just email me at email@example.com If you have ever wondered..Sophie is my heart dog and first Lab. My inspiration for all that I am doing. She actually runs the office here "reading" letters and running off, I mean borrowing pencils and pens. Our second Lab Fergus just sleeps here, and the youngest Sammy, he removes my coffee cup from my desk and brings it to his bed. And why do my computer keys pop off?? Ugh.

I tell everyone my Lab Sophie smiles. And she does. Today was the first day I got her doing it after 9 years of trying. The key?? Don't hold the camera to your face. I started saying.."well that was silly of me" and she started smiling away. She thinks I'm the best thing around!!! She even laughs at my crummy jokes.

Well...they never went to the Super Bowl that year but I painted his dogs and he sent me pastees and cheese.
This is beloved Hogan who went to the Bridge recently and needless to say he is missed terribly.
This is for you Jim and Jackie...thanks for the cheese and the friendship.
I have 3 to go I believe. They may be the lucky ones..it seems the more I'm painting the better they get. Yes I'm very pleased how this one turned out...
Thanks for looking...chat later. Sheila
