What a great dog! And what a great photo of him standing next to the red boots.I love the painting. As I look at it, I think "the cheese stands alone." That's because I either read a blog about someone feeling like the cheese or saw something on TV--I don't think I dreamed it. Those tree trunks (are there 13?) seem to glow. Love those colors.
ohhhh my gosh i love larry!
LARRY!!!! I wish that I loved the snow as much as he does!! I love your captioning... And nice painting too!!
Hallie, Yes, Larry is a great dog. He's nestled right into our hearts, a great addition to the family. "The Cheese Stands Alone" could work! As far as the tree trunks, I had to go and count, there are 14, in fact I added one yesterday. They do glow. The origin of the color is from the underpainting. I hadn't put any tree color on and I like the reddish/pink that showed through, so I kept it and worked into it.THanks Ali and Marilyn--What's not to love about Larry? (except when he eats Kitty Kandy)
This can't be "the cheese stands alone'--maybe the maple stands alone. I think I came across that phrase in a book I'm reading and was humming "The Farmer in the Dell" all day.Larry is so cool!
OH Indigo...I'm so happy I came over to meet Larry...when did he come to live with you? Where did you/he find each other?The painting does indeed glow and I love underpaintings for the same reason...they bring so much of the unexpected to a piece making it sing...like your trees...singing trees...they do don't they.
Iona,Larry came to us in July, we got him at a local shelter. He was 10 weeks old, cute as a button. We LOVE him sooo much. He is a constant source of fun, delight and love. He has filled a space in our hearts that so needed filling after we lost Woody. I like the phrasing and concept of singing trees. Happy New Year to you and the rest of the visitors!
I love Larry's story...he is such a lucky boy...and you, of course, are so fortunate to have such a little ball o' love living with you.Every body wins.HEY!! I'm coming to Cleveland in March...here's the scoop:http://www.donnaionadrozda.com/HEART_WORK_RETREAT.htmlIt would be so excellent to see you.hugsd
