It’s been a long time since I painted anything but my nails.
Fall is coming, however, and so is PAWS/LA’s biggest year fundraiser, Pet Art 9. I’ve been involved with this event since 2001 (or Pet Art 3, if you’re counting), and I absolutely love it. Time to paint pictures of pooches!

This year, I knew I didn’t want to paint anything from my “dreaming dogs” series. The problem is finding a theme that is kind of universal–after all, who wants a painting of someone else’s pet hanging on their wall? (That said, after years of attending Pet Art, I have loads of paintings and photos of other people’s dogs on my walls, so maybe I’m not the right person to ask).
Anyway, I’m lovin’ this painting. I’d totally hang it on my own wall if I wasn’t donating it to Pet Art. Hopefully someone at the auction will feel that way as well and pay lots of money for it!
