oil on artist panel 6x6 inches
This is Murphy — a Wheaten Terrier who lives in Fair Oaks, California.  He's one of three much-loved dogs who are part of my husband's brother's family out that way.  He's an oldie and a cutie.  I'm not sure that this painting does justice to his sweet face, but I do know one thing:  it sure was a pleasure to look at his photo for a couple of hours while trying to capture it!


  1. Ah, what a sweety. I love the subtle coloration in the fur.

  2. I think you definitely captured his sweet face.... makes me smile!

  3. Thank you Maureen -- I'm glad you commented, because I was able to check out your blogs and website -- wow! You are very talented. I find watercolor difficult (no take-backs!) and am amazed at artists such as yourself that handle it so well. I'll be following you!! :^)
