Thanks Gayl! I'm halfway through a labrador painting and I have two cats also to do at some time but we have a very busy few weeks coming up so, heaven knows when I'll get the chance to put brush to canvas again!
Oh, Marie, I love Mungo! You can almost hear him panting! You captured the look of joy a happy dog has on his face!! Just a great painting!!
P.S. Oh, my gosh Marie...I thought the fuzzy black dog of Jeff's was a photo...that is really a good painting!!! Next you'll be painting William and Kate Windsor's new dog!! That's a good idea...then you could meet them when they find out about it.
Many thanks Mary, the fuzzy little dog (apparently a spoodle) was a little dog that Jeff and his mum had years and years ago. A lot of the painting was guesswork but Jeff's mum now has the painting hanging in her hallway
That's an idea about Kate and Will's new dog! Mmmm...
Hi Marie. So good to see you are still doing your lovely paintings.
I've not been on for ages so only just spotted Mungo and Jeff's little dog. They are really good ( but all your paintings are ) I especially love the little black dog, it looks as though we could just reach out and smooth his soft fur.
Both pictures are good but I like the first one. It looks like a real picture. I'm also painting but I think these are awesome. thanks you for this painting.

Thanks so much Dermot! Do you mean the spaniel? I have between 8 and 10 paintings on here including Useless but he seems to have disappeared!! The dynomite must have got him ;D
I have a few others to paint soon but I have to get 'into the mood' ;D All my painting gear is in this little office at the back of our house and it's colder in here than other rooms at this time of year!
I hope it does remind us all of a certain loch ;D I seem to remember that I took it from a kind boglie's photo. Gosh I see all the faults in the painting now. I haven't done any more landscapes really, once I got on to painting pets.
Simply beautiful paintings Marie. I don't know how to attach a pic in a post or I'd love to share a photo of my cat Bailey --- been with me for 13 years now. I admire anyone who can draw/paint. Me - I can't to decent stick figures or even paint by numbers. I'm a writer (non-fiction/news mostly as a radio/TV reporter and now magazine editor) and voice over/sports announcer who flunked art classes in Jr. High School!
Thank you so much for your comment, it's appreciated. I picked up painting again after 30-40 years and found such enjoyment in doing it. Found I especially like drawing or painting fur. My cat Lucy 14 went missing after visitors brought their dog with them. We scoured the streets for about ten weeks, ads, posters everything. But never saw her again. I was heartbroken. We now have Lily who is 4 now and absolutely spoilt. If you should want me to do a painting for you just message me and we will sort something out 😊
I meant to add I can, to some extent, feel your pain... years ago I had a beautiful long-hair grey and white kitty, looked very similar to my present day Bailey, named Bilbo (I was in my JRR Tolkien period!). He'd been with me many years from a kitten, and I'd just moved into a new apartment across town. He woke me in the middle of the night wanting outside being upset at having been awakened, I let him out - into a new neighborhood he'd not yet acclimated to - and never saw him again. Like you, searched for weeks - drove by my previous residence every day for days on end thinking he'd gone "home". Sad...

Thanks Marie - I found the messaging mechanism and replied to your PM. And yes, I do have a Photobucket account and am familiar with that method of posting photos... thanks for the help. Forgot you are a forum administrator.
