Welcome to The Dog Party
Dogs make us happy. They are always their to make us feel special. Every kind of dog, from shaggy to bald, big to small, from workers to couch potatoes, dogs remind us to love.
When I had children, I was reacquainted with the wonderful book, Go Dog Go by P.D. Eastman. A contemporary of Dr. Seuss, P.D. Eastman told imaginative stories with simple language and colourful expressive drawings of dogs doing un-dog like things. As a child this book made me wonder what dogs were actually thinking about (beyond food and smelly things) What they really thought about. Did they really understand us? Do we really understand them?
This started my love of painting dogs. Capturing their individual spirit and personality is the heart of each piece. Painting them has become a new passion. I hope that they show the whimsy and fun in how we love our canine friends. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
