Merry Christmas!

Christmas Blessings and Happy Holidays to my wonderful blogging friends.  Thanks to all who visit and leave encouraging comments!  You are appreciated more than you know and I am forever grateful for your support!

May the new year bring you peace, happiness and good health with many creative opportunities.

In three days we will celebrate the beginning of Jade's fifth year with us and her ninth year of age (so far as we know).  What a wonderful shelter find she was!  This is the first portrait I've painted of her.  Jade's friends are telling  me this is the first time they've seen her mouth closed!  She is very vocal and when not happily speaking to us,  has a toy in her mouth squeaking away!  Now I can't wait to paint her again.  She's a long-haired or "coated" German Shepherd and weighs 92 pounds.  Our darling!
