HAPPY 2018

It is the year of the dog and this is the first painting of the year.

Butters is a lovable foster dog. Late this past year, he made his way into the hearts of a couple who are just starting out. They are moving into their new home together and this is their house warming gift. I can't wait to give it to them.

The sun was a little strong and bleached out the colors but the photo gives you an idea of scale.
