Larry the Dog Sedivy
Last year in February we said goodbye to our best dog, Woody after spending 15 wonderful years together. It took a year or so before we began to think of having a dog around, although we still missed him. So much.
My daughter and I have been visiting the local shelters for a few months. Nothing grabbed our hearts. Then we met Larry. (His siblings were Curly and Mo).
He's been with us for a week and he is working his way into our hearts and home with all his puppy cuteness and personality. I've got a big space in my heart where Woody rests, but its funny how hearts work. Ours have opened up with ease and made space for this little guy.

Last year I worked on a commission which I struggled with the during the entire process. Nothing ever rang true, although I tried to convince myself otherwise. So, after the buyer wasn't interested in it, I covered it in red and waited for inspiration. Which came while I was out birding one soft morning. The day was foggy, soft and gorgeous. I took lots of reference photos.
This is what I came up with.
It's leaving tomorrow to hang in a solo exhibition in Tremont. (nice arty area in Cleveland)
And on that note, gotta run.....so much to do for the show!
