Two dogs, a book and a movie

Kiva the Shepherd Mix

Hi everybody...sorry I've been kind of a blog slacker lately. Just been trying to focus on too many things at one time! Anyway, these are two of my earlier dog portraits, note cards of each are now available in my Etsy Dog Shop.

JAX the Border Collie
James was back east at a rowing competition last weekend...so Maisie and I did some reading and movie watching together (aside from our daily 10 miles of walking!). Augusten Burroughs is one of my favorite Authors so I've been reading his latest, "A Wolf At The Table"...very dark but very good. Also, if you're looking for an excellent documentary...there's a new one on HBO called, "Boy Interrupted". Wow, this one packs a punch and is so moving and profound.

What book or movie have YOU liked lately? Huh?



Great paintings! And I love a blog post with a question. I recently finished "Julie and Julia" and plan on seeing the movie next week. I've always been a big fan of Julia Child and I've heard Meryl Streep does her proud (not a surprise). The Julie/Julia project was one of many inspirations behind my new project idea. Check out my blog...I'd love to use a pic of Maisie!! XOXO

The portraits are terrific! Wonderful job with the eyes Linda!
I also just say Julie and Julia! I took my eighteen year old daughter who was reluctant to go. We both loved it! Worth seeing!

These are just beautiful portraits Linda....

It has been so hot here, believe me, I like staying in to watch movies as well.
