Nat's Artwork

A few months ago My Girl started painting lessons, and now we're hanging artwork around the house. It's mostly still lifes and one fox (no, not a fox terrier, just a grey fox but you gotta start somewhere, I told her). We're waiting for the day that she'll paint a picture of us. Since I'm such a handsome devil, it should be a winner. I'm practicing my smile.

In the meantime, we're keeping an eye on Pappy's blog. Pappy's fellow is a painter, too, and has been busy imortalizing all of Pappy's bits and pieces on canvas and postcards. He has quite a collection of paintings on his artblog. If you haven't been keeping up with Nat Dickinson's art, it's worth checking out. You can even enter a contest to win a postcard with some of Nat's art on it. I have to say that Pappy is one lucky dog, being a model for so many pieces of artwork!

Hey, Tell.

Looks like your girl has talent! Can't wait to see how she renders you on canvas.

I just received one of Nat's art postcards a couple of days ago. I think his art site is very cool!

Hope all is well at Casa de Tell!

Goober love,

Your girl's painting is VERY nice. You are some lucky dawgs. You may have to sit still for a few minutes for the portrait. If you are like Sam, that may be hard. Your girl better learn to speed paint.

She seems pretty handy with a brush alrighty. Nice job.
