Busy elves. Making Christmas presents. This is Boo. My sister in law, Beth wanted her dog in a portrait. Let me tell you about Boo. Last summer Boo got spooked by fire crackers. She took off like a bat out of h.... I mean a bat cave. I joined in the campaign to find her, signs, posters, news paper adds, what ever way we could. Boo is part Saluki and she is the fasted thing on wheels. First days, then weeks went by, no Boo. Her people knew to put an ID chip in her shoulder because about six weeks later they got a call that the animal control had picked her up. Don't give up hope, I would tell her. This story had a happy ending!
I found the canvas at Hobby Lobby. Regular frames for an oval were expensive. I looked around the store thinking there might be something that would work instead. Sure enough I found this twig wreath for just a few bucks. I hope that Beth does not look at my blog at least until Christmas!

~Snowball Pooped Out~

Ah, isn't he the sweetest? After playing with his ribbon, snowball just pooped out! I have placed this painting on ebay, today. I am very happy how it turned out. The two paintings would look wonderful together.

This is snowball. She wanted to play with the ribbons when we were wrapping presents.

Back to work. It's been a heck of a time. My mother is doing better thanks to a doctor who treated her. He was able to get a handle on pain management. Her prognosis is not good, but they may be able to keep her here for a while longer.
We welcomed a grandchild into the world Nov. 28th. His name is Korben. Perfect and beautiful 8lbs and 2oz.
