Cleopatra is the sweetest, long haired German Shepherd, but when my husband got this shot of her trying to catch a mouthful of leaves, I knew it was the perfect Halloween shot! Watch those piles of leaves tonight...you never know when you're going to step on a Devil Dog!!! Boo!

I though I would post a photo of my puppy, Cleopatra. She's a long-haired German Shepherd, East German heritage, not American (with that too low sloping back). She's an angel and I really need to do a painting of her for my husband for Christmas. I'll post it after I'm done. She's 7 months old and a sweetheart, marvel of a dog. I just finished walking her and it's freezing outside! It won't be long before the snow starts. Happy Fall to everyone and keep drawing!

I painted this yesterday for my Dad's 90th birthday, coming up this month. His old black lab mix, Angus, passed away a few months ago and I thought he'd enjoy a painting of him. I couldn't find an actual photo of him but did a search on the web of photos of old black labs and with some input from my brother as to what he actually looked like, put together this painting. My Dad lives in Florida and me in New Hampshire, so I only have vague recollections of Angus. Plus I hate to fly so I haven't been down there for a while. My dad comes up here to visit every summer, but the dog stays down there. A notice to everyone...take lots of pictures of your pets!!!!!! Some day you may want a portrait of them.
