Happy New Year!

Wow, this is my first post of 2010. As I look back, I realize that between my two blogs, I have written 112 posts this past year. That says something about my love for pets and my love for writing about them. I have realized over the past few years, as I divide my time between artwork and writing, that writing usually wins out. I have a real passion for it, and hope that in 2010 I will have the opportunity to add another book to my professional credits.

Meanwhile, I continue with my artwork and pet sitting too. I finished several pet portraits just before Christmas. The first dog, Justin is a yellow Lab, one of my favorite subjects. It was fun to paint her picture as a puppy and now as a 12-year-old.

The second portrait is Max, a German Shepherd rescued from Coastal German Shepherd Rescue here in San Diego. He lives in his new home with Dena, a GSD I painted several months ago, who is also a rescue. They are two very lucky dogs, and I salute their owners, Jackie and Howard, for adopting from a rescue group!

My family just got a new horse! His name is Ringer and we're already in love (got him 4 days ago BOL). Hey, love the Max portrait and especially your mention that he's a rescue. Great post and great job Jackie and Howard. We love you.
