"My Guy, Tobey"


6"x6"
Oil on Gessoboard

Oh what a day!!! I worked on a painting I'd started yesterday--scraped it off more times that I remember and finally decided to paint my next to favorite male in my household--my little dog, Tobey!! I took some pics of him yesterday right after he'd been groomed and was playing with some other dogs. Such a great little creature!!! I'm blessed. I decided I'd give it to my absolutely favorite male in the household for Valentine's Day.

Vicki, I love your paintings! I also have a part Bichon puppy. You certainly captured the spirit of the breed.

Vicki, I LOVE this painting. As a Bichon lover who is also involved in rescue, I have a herd of little white dogs around the house at all times. You have truly captured the "Bichon smile" and spirit of this wonderful breed.
Just....wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
