A House and a Dog

"Little Winter House"
6" x 7" acrylic and collage on canvas
available on Etsy here

This is my newest painting (between Maisie patrol)...of a little winter house. Gotta say beautiful as winter is here...I am ready for spring and some warm weather!

I had a wonderful surprise yesterday. My multi-talented friend, Melissa came over for a visit and brought me this beautiful painting of Maisie Rose! James and I just love it...and think it really captures Maisie and her "look". This is sort of the "I'm sorry I ate your sock, mom...but I'm too adorable to be mad at" look. Thank you so much, are the best!

"Maisie Rose"
11" x 14" acrylic on wood

And speaking of Miss Maise...she gets an x-ray this Friday to see how her toe is healing. Keep your fingers crossed!

Hi Linda!
I am so happy you like the painting. It was so much fun to paint her. Maisie is so special. She inspired me.

Love the pink! Awesome job Melissa! And it totally looks like Miss Maisie.

And brrr, your cozy little winter home painting looks like it feels here in Seattle! Down to the 30's at night. Looking forward to summer. :-)
