I painted many adorable dogs (and one cat!) for the Christmas season. You can see a collection of my work here. Out of all of them, I feel I must bestow the Happiest Dog Award upon…
Opi! He is pictured (below) running, mid-air, through Zilker Park. in Austin, Texas. His owner, Rob Hengel, shared with me that the photo was taken one a day after Opi had spent a lot of time inside. Rob took the day off from work and let him run wild at the park. It was a special time. Opi has now moved on to Doggie Heaven, but we know he is running up there just the same. I honestly don’t think I’ve seen a happier creature.
The 2nd Place Happiest Dog Award goes to Bentley. We’re not sure, but we think he was in a wash basin of some kind, and clearly really happy about getting a bath…or something:
Thanks to everyone who let me paint their pet for the holidays! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
