Artful Living

lucky dog

Meet Snoopy.  He was my childhood dog.  During high school, I took oil painting lessons and shared my lessons with my Mother and this was the first painting that she did of Snoopy.  The last time I was home, I took a photo.  I adored Snoopy and this painting too.  My Mother raised seven of us, took care of countless animals, entertained, cooked and always seemed to find time to create.  I keep encouraging her to paint the way she encourages me.

I was in college when Snoopy left this planet to “doggie heaven” and I will never forget crying on the phone with my Mom.  I love this painting to remember what a sweet family dog he was and how much we all loved him.  I think Snoopy was one lucky dog.
