View Full Version : dogs smiling back

This is my first posting and my first original painting.
I began with Tole painting classes and then I gave myself a challenge to do something original. So, for Christmas 2004 I wanted to give my family each an "original". Our oldest daughter Chris had taken a picture of Taffy (Alaskan Malamute/lab cross) and Buddy (Bernese Mountain Dog) smiling back at her. Unfortunately, Buddy passed away. Since then, we got Tucker (Golden Retriever). I just finished this. I still owe our other daughter Cindy a picture of just Tucker as a puppy. My husband Sandy is owed a large picture of his favourite spot - Superstition Mountains - Apache Junction, Arizona (a view from the Mammoth Saloon at the Old Dutchman's Mine). I hope to have these two completed before this Christmas 2005!

Just want to say that the painting was done by grey5ft2. I wish it was mine but I just sized the painting for her :)
