BARDLEDOO #4 of 50

8x8 oil on canvas panel

#4 in the 50/50 series is Bardledoo, a sweet little baby who had a very, very short life. Bardledoo died last month of an unknown virus, but lived life to the fullest in her 4 short months as a cattle working dog and a great buddy to a family of longhorn ranchers. As a cattle dog in training, one of her favorite things was to play with the baby calves. She was particular about people, but was loyal to her favorite person her dad, Mark. Bardledoo's fav foods consisted of june bugs and ice cubes, yum, yum!

8x8 oil on canvas panel

This is #3 in my challenge series of 50 pets this summer. You might be wondering what happened to #'s 1 and's quite simple, they ended up in a most disgusting way and will have to be re-painted at a later date. Michelle Muse is a family (not mine) chicken and you'll soon see another painting of her very soon.

The summer is fading quickly. We have decided to build a little art studio and the last several weeks have been busy with decision making, so as decisions are made, I'm still managing to paint each day; I'll post photos soon. Thanks for looking at my blog, hope you are having a great summer, too. Take care!
