Joy 5 x 7 oil on museum board

I loved this photos of my friends' dogs (Sophie and Jordie) running on the
beach in the outerbanks. So I asked
if I could paint it:)
It just had such a feeling of freedom and joy!

My painting pal Jo MacKenzie does beautiful
watercolors and lots of pets.
She is always looking for pet photos, so if
you've snapped a good one recently send it along to her.
You can check out her work here:


  1. This has a marvelous feeling of movement. Clever and skillful. I adore Jo's art too.
    Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog today. I am already feeling the connection of support in the blogging world. Have a great day.

  2. Thanks so much for commenting Julie, so nice to have you back online after the big push for your show!

  3. Great to see how you have painted the dogs. Painting pulsates with energy.

  4. Thank you Susan! I think they ran till they just couldn't run any more!
