This painting was commissioned by a father and son, following the death of their faithful friend. I rarely get to actually reveal a painting live. On this occasion I was invited to their house to help hang it.
As an artist I still can't get used to the emotions my art can bring.
The son's look of pure joy at seeing his dog on canvas was in sharp contrast to watching the father's face drop in the sad emotion of grieving.
Both father and son will treasure this piece...I'll will treasure that memory.

This morning I felt my heart burst ... the joy Honey greets every morning with seems to be increasing exponentially ... a switch seems to have flipped and I believe she has come to believe that I belong to her ... a routine has begun where at first sign of life in the morning after grooming Peanut to an inch of her life ... Honey bounds onto me with such abandon her happiness is palpable ... she buries her face in mine as I try to escape her tongue which has just been elsewhere without making her feel rejected lol ... she then proceeds to flip on her back as she is shmooshing her head into mine and cuddling in as I wrap my arms around her ... after she eats she comes in for a quiet snuggle and just stays put with her head buried into my chest as if savoring the moment ... I am seeing her relax and it just makes my heart sing even as I wonder what this pure ball of light endured as a dog on the streets of PV Mexico ... the only hint I get is the way she views squirrels ... I truly believe she thinks they are #mealsonwheels which you get a little taste of in the video... usually the humming sound she makes goes on for quite a while ... I am hoping she thinks they are long lost playmates instead of moving buffets 😳
Nei secoli mutano gli stili, le mode, le tendenze dell'arte. Tuttavia, a mio parere, la raffigurazione degli animali, in special modo quelli domestici, appare come un solido un ponte temporale che unisce il passato al presente. #arte#pittura#animali#petsinarthistory#petsinart
I don’t know what’s making me happier this very second ... the giant salad I just made ... the wine patiently waiting to be savored ... the two puppy dogs fast asleep for the night ... the latest Spotify playlist of ‘kill me now’ music playing ... painting a subject that has incredibly huge liquid soulful eyes ... or just the glorious mix all of the above ... 😏
Someone is exhausted watching me paint ... I am exhausted looking at that pile of laundry because someone ... who shall remain nameless ... and it isn’t Honey ... peed on my bed last night ... why WHY WHY ... 😩😩😩 #youweredoingsigood 🐶 #princesspeepee 🐶

Happy #museumweek day 6! Today we #zoomMW in on some rarely seen works from the Vancouver Art Gallery's collection. You have probably looked at an Emily Carr painting before. How about her other work? Here's a delightful watercolour on paper by this beloved Canadian artist, depicting a gathering with her friends and her numerous pet animals.
Image: Emily Carr, Self Portrait with Friends, circa 1907. Watercolour, graphite, ink on paper. Collection of the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery Acquisition Fund. This painting was last exhibited in the exhibition "An Autobiography of Our Collection" at the Gallery in 2011.
On this day 369 years ago, princess Wilhelmine Ernestine was born at Copenhagen Castle. She enjoyed a privileged upbringing with her royal siblings. Later, she married Prince Carl of Pfalz for political reasons, but the marriage was unhappy. After 14 years of marriage, during which the prince had even contemplated divorcing her, Wilhelmine Ernestine became a widow. She moved to the German city of Lictenburg. Here, she lived with her sister, who was also a widow, for 20 years. The sisters were buried together ✨
What do you think to this! I've been experimenting adding coloured backgrounds to my paintings and I think they look really cool!! Considering a range of prints in this style... What do you guys think?? Yay or Nay?

Bernedoodle, 11x14”, oil on linen. Delivered last month to a favorite client as a “thank you from the bottom of my toes” for letting us help with window treatments in their second home 🏡 😍 It’s always an honor to be asked to make draperies, bedding, etc in someone’s home. But to be asked back on another large project, some years later, is an honor I don’t take lightly. Here’s to the “more in March”! 💥🎉💥 #bernedoodlesofinstagram#bernedoodle
