Full Birthday Circle!

Happy September, Friends!
On Barbie Larimore’s birthday in June, her sister Joanne Larimore asked me to make a memorial portrait for Barbie of her beloved dog, Oakley. Here it is, and as it happens, today is Joanne’s birthday. It’s a full birthday circle. Happy Birthday to both of you fab sisters!

Happy June, Friends!
Summer is nigh!
This is my portrait of WILLIE the poodle who lives with and loves his friends Karen Hadley and Sonja Rothe. I painted her under bright summer sunshine.
Hope this month is full of dog walks and peonies and patio dinners.
