Pity Party is over!

Another sample for the Dog/Pet supply store who will be hanging this and two other paintings in their store for me. I apologize for the glare on the image.


This is Nika!

Cheery! Hi Sheila! Thought I would drop by and see my old blogger friends sites and say Hi. Love this happy guy. Reminds me of my dog.

What a perky face on this pup. Sheila, did you give her a little smile or is it my imagination?

Manon Doyle said...

Those pity parties are something, aren't they? They happen to the best of us, I think. So glad you've had an upswing! I don't like my friends hurting. This little dog is gorgeous. I just see such a happy personality, boundless joy in life in this guy!

There is definitely something different about your paintings lately on a positive side. Liking them a lot! Keep it up.

Hi,
j'ai deux dalmatiens. Je retrouve dans le regard de votre toutou un regard malicieux et heureux, identique à celui que je peux apercevoir chez mes chiens. je pense que nous les nourrissons du même bonheur.
En attendant bravo pour votre travail et merci d'être venue visiter mon blog et pour votre gentil message. A bientôt.

Sheila, your pet paintings always make me smile, especially this one of Nika.

Another great painting! I'm sorry to see you had a pity party. I would have attended if invited, but I was too busy hosting my own. Hope things are better. Hugs to you.

This one is so sweet, Sheila! I love the face and the ears on this one. Nice work!

Mary Paquet said...

Just precious, Sheila. All your pieces have so much of your passion in them. Isn't it great that we have art as an outlet on those days when things are not going so well.

Sheila E. said...

This made me SMILE! and feel Happy! great job and I'm glad you are doing better.

He looks like a happy dog with a personality. How does one capture personality in an animal? You've done it here. Great job.

I love your pet portraits. As I've said before, they have your unique style and the bold colors give them even more animation and emotion. The size would be even more dramatic when visualized on a wall. Regarding the "pity party"...I always feel that a certain amount of ranting and emoting and whining and WHATEVER ELSE IT TAKES to exorcise those negative feelings is justified. Being able to "vent" through your art is great as well. We move on slowly, at our own pace, and it eventually happens and of course we become stronger for it.
