Portrait of Bob and other thoughts

Christmas is upon us and all the portraits are done. I love to think of them all sitting under Christmas trees waiting. I particularly like this one-Bob-and unusual looking fellow with one blue and one brown eye-and all those fabulous curls!For all the bad we hear on the news of animals being treated badly-so many more are loved so much.They deserve that love-they give us way more than we give them every day without question.My only hope is that those that cannot love them will somehow change their ways and realize that these are the best things in life.Merry Christmas to you all,love your pets as you love your people,CarlaPortrait of Bob

Bulldogs and Christmas and other thoughts

I am finding in this years Christmas crop of paintings that there have been more bulldogs-I love to paint these dogs with their wrinkles and nonchalant attitude about just about everything.One day I will add one of these beauties to my pack.With Christmas portraits I find an outpouring of love that people have for their pets.They are with us for just such a short time and we want them to stay.I guess that is why the portraits are popular-one way to keep the remembrance of that love alive and looking down on you from their special place on the wall' I just finished this portrait of Murphy-a very handsome fellow-now on to the next love in someones life,CarlaMurphy
