It’s The Thought That Counts

It’s The Thought That Counts, 8″x10″, oil on canvas.  Sold.

For those of you who like to get into the Christmas mood a little early, here is one for you.   I feel a little sorry for these guys.  I think they were expecting toys or treats or something fun but instead they get socks, scarves, earmuffs and hats. Do they really need them?   The dogs seem a little confused but the cat is clearly angry.  Oh and since I tend to paint only purebred dogs (how snooty am I?) I decided to try and include a Cocker Spaniel/ Corgi mix….not sure if that came across?

I won’t be doing Christmas cards this year- I know, not very festive.  The main issue is that our printer gets really temperamental with card stock.  I’m not sure why- I think the ends curl up and drag some of the ink along.  It usually results in more waste than anything and I figure my patience and sanity is running a little low these days so why push it.

Happy Friday!

  1. They are very cute. I especially love the cat as I have a cat myself and he would certainly be giving me the same look if I dare put ear muffs on his head. As for the dog with the socks how happy does he look 🙂 Another gorgeous painting. Happy Friday to you too.

  2. Janet, How did you get them to sit still for so long? That’s the question. Although, I think I heard you say once that you’re a fast painter. Anyway, I love it!

    Hang on, girlfriend.
