I love Jack Russells!

"Bogey"
13" x 16" acrylic on canvas

Here's Bogey, the Jack Russell...my latest commission. The purple blanket with green dots was his favorite thing to sit on. Bogey isn't here with us any longer ...but his spirit was surely with me in my studio. I could tell he was a very sweet boy with a sassy attitude and a heart as big as they come.

James and I will start packing up the rest of the house this weekend...our moving date is set for August 21st! All the commotion and change is making Maisie a little crazy...but she's going to be very happy once she see's her new bunny town.

What are YOU doing this weekend? Have a good one whatever it is! xox

Amazing how you capture the personality of each pet. That's really hard to do. Have a good weekend-MB

Bogey is wonderful!

BTW, my sister and family recently moved and her 3 year old daughter was having a very hard time with all the commotion. I coined a new phrase..."Layla feels commotional." Now I use it all the time. Feel free to use as needed. As in "Moving is very commotional for Maisie."

Right on the spot! What a lovely way to remember our best friends!

Still overseas...the Mediterranean blue misses you :)

I love Bogey! What a character! And you've captured all of it! Hope your move won't be too commotional and that you'll all be thrilled with the new bunny town, not mention the new studio. Can you tell I'm jealous!

Oh my goodness, what a cutie pie! And Bogey's purple blanket with green polka dots... well he's just too much! He and his blanket look terrific set against the yellow background, Linda. Really great job! Hugs, Shari

My only experience with a Jack Russell was a client's dog, who dove on me from behind making me spill my drink all over my client. Bad dog! Beautiful painting, love the expression. Hope the move goes well.

Wow that is a great painting and sounds like you really captured the spirit...


There is a woman at Wet Canvas who paints a lot of Jack Russels, do you by chance know who I mean. If not i'll have to see if I can find her again.
