For the Love of Dogs

Our Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge spent a lovely evening with great music and exploring a new dinner menu from the Jacked Rabbit Food Truck at the Lynchburg Humane Society for the first Friday art event.  It was so much fun to see these precious animals being so well kept in their temporary homes at this beautiful facility.  We met a lot of animal lovers with the opportunity to show some of our animal paintings at the facility.

I began painting a number of dogs portraits this past year.  This was
one I really enjoyed because her personality just seemed to come forward as I painted.  It was a dog I would have loved to had in my family and so glad I had the opportunity to paint her portrait.

The last dog I had in my family was truly one of my best friends and I truly miss her. I was fortunate to have her in the family for 14 years and she had an unbelievable personality.  That is one of the reasons I really enjoy painting animals......I was just sorry I did not have a really good photograph to work from to do a portrait my "Pooh".  So always be sure you have photographs of your pet family.

If you happen to be in Lynchburg during September be sure and drop by the Humane Society and see the animals, the great facility and stop in to see the art work of the Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge.
