6x9 oil on canvas
A few months ago we adopted this little puppy (6 months old this week) from the Tzu Zoo Rescue group, which we found through Pet Finder. In addition to painting during my summer break, I also took a lot of breaks to house train, play, clean, play, pull things out of her mouth...the same mouth with the very sharp, house train, and play!

Her name is Cowgirl and we love her. My summer break is over, but when I come home, Cowgirl is waiting for me with her whole little body wagging, and we play, play, play!

If you're thinking of a new pet for your family, please check out Pet Finder, it is a great way to find a rescue group near you.

What a cute little girl she is! Is that a heart charm hanging from her collar? So cute!

Love the eyes in this!
Dogs are very special people, Angela.

'You can say any fool thing to a dog, and the dog will give you this look that says, `My God, you're RIGHT! I NEVER would've thought of that!'...Dave Barry quote.

So cute!! You did a wonderful job showing her personality and a wonderful thing by rescuing her.

What a darling and lucky pup to get you for her new mom, Angela!

You really captured the trusting expression in her eyes. I'm sure Cowgirl will have her portrait painted often.

Hi Angela
Remember me?
I came over to look and see what you have been up to. And look what I find,,, that you have a new little girl to love!
The portrait that you painted is so beautiful. You capture every emotion that is possible to feel when we look at Cowgirl.
Her eyes sparkle, and I am sure her personality does too.
Congratulations on your little one.
My moms and I are still in awe with the portrait that you did of me. Every single day we look at it. Every day we are so thankful that we came across you, and that you chose to paint my portrait.
You are an awsome artist.... and we love you
