This has been puppy week in our household. We've been totally taken in by our new English Shepherd puppy, Cheerio. She has become my new muse. A lovely tri-color, everyone who meets her thinks she is a Bernese Mountain Dog. But thank-goodness she will grow to be only about half the size! Sweet and laid-back, she is learning to become a studio dog. However, the mountainous stairs in the studio have her a little on edge. I've been painting dogs, and cats this week, working on a theme here. I'm finishing up a few driving horse pieces, and have several new canvases toned and ready to paint. But for now, puppy needs a walk!
