National Pet Day
“You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!’”
blissful eyes reflect
absolute trust devotion
For National Pet Day, I started with a quote in answer to Elusive Trope’s 3-day quote challenge. And of course, a poem for NaPoWriMo. My neocolor drawing is a portrait of Bliss, one of the beautiful golden retrievers who shares the life of Tim, The Forester Artist. When he posted this photo in January, I remarked to him that her face begged to be drawn. It’s taken me awhile, but she is a perfect poster girl for the day.
It’s been a long time since I drew any dogs. I did a few drawings and paintings of one of my roommate’s wonderful dogs, Bacchus, 40+ years ago, and I think I may have a painting of one of Nina’s dogs from back in the day somewhere. Since my animal hair allergies appeared, I haven’t been able to live with either dogs or cats, and I do feel the loss. Pets are good companions.
And once again Celebrating the Days this month with Charlie at Doodlewash.
