Shepherd of the Grapes

"Shepherd of the Grapes"
10" x 11" acrylic on canvas

Here she is...Miss Shepherd of the Grapes herself, Maisie Rose O'Neill! This is what I submitted for the wine label competition today. I also submitted a title for the wine, "We carefully shepherd our grapes".

If you'd like to vote for having Maisie on Mutt Lynch's limited edition wine label...you can do so on Dog Art Today's blog starting Monday, June 15th through Friday, June 19th. One winner will then be chosen by judges from the top 10 finalists and announced on June 22. The wine label will be revealed at the August 8, 2009 Dog Days of Summer event. How exciting!

Heading out tomorrow for a friend's wedding in Oregon. Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

I could not love this any more; It's fabulous! I love the greens and the deep purple. And Maisie's expression is wonderful!

Mine does not feature my own dog, but now I wish it did. ; ( Oh well. I'm working frantically trying to finish it by Friday...wish me luck!

Hi Linda,

Hope you have a great time at your friend's wedding. Wow, I love Maisie in this painting. She looks like a very loyal shepard. You don't think she'll eat any of those grapes, do you?? : )
