mary had a little dog

Actually, Mary's dog still lives in my studio, and I've loved having the little guy around. It's hard to let him go, but I called her to tell her about this post and blew my cover. I've been avoiding haggling with her over the price; she's an accountant, and I'm me.

Great painting. Sanjay happened to see it on my monitor (he didn't know it was your blog) and he said, "That's a nice one!"

Word verif. : judge. An actual English word. As in, Here Comes The.

Sanjay is a great judge of fine art. Welcome home, dude!

Love that airborne little guy on spring-o-lator paws.
Essence of doggie-ness, great strong color.

Whoa! This is graphically strong and I'm enjoying the colors and contrasts.

Yes, you've caught the perfect expression, a bit of doggy's personality.

I can see why you're avoiding negotiations.

Loriann --
Yes, personality plus. Big dog in small suit.

Bonnie --
Spring-o-lator, har har! Patent that name! Yeah, strong color. No nuance here; just straight-out-of-the-tube color. Subtlety is a sometime thing. Sometimes.

Melinda --
Like Popeye, he is what he is. Balls-to-the-walls dog. But I love him.

Love this dog, Sam!

Thanks for the visit, Don! Glad you like it; I respect your opinion.

Welcome back from paradise. Feel like you've had a good dose of technicolor?

Lucky Mary!

Thanks, Patrice. Lucky me; Mary hasn't called back yet.
