Going to the dogs!

It's been a while since I've been on my computer (I know you can blog from your phone, but I haven't upgraded my phone in a while😕). Anyways, dogs have been keeping me busy! These are recent commissioned pieces: Griff, Maxie, Murphy, and Stanley. I loved doing them all! More recent artwork to come!  


  1. Welcome back, Laurie! So nice to see you back on your blog.
    These paintings are just gorgeous! Such lucky dog owners here - each portrait to be cherished forever, I'm sure.

  2. So nice to see you back Laurie! These are adorable and I am sure that the lucky recipients will be thrilled. The third one reminded me of the way my dog used to look at us - all sad eyed and pleading - nice memory!

    1. Thanks, Val-glad you have a nice memory!

  3. Hello again! These are all so wonderful :) Glad to see you happily painting!

  4. Laurie, hip hip hooray! So happy to see a post at your blog—to see YOU as you shine through your art. I am enjoying your use of contrasts within each of these paintings—dark nose/tongues/eyes vs light fur and backgrounds; and soft loose brush strokes that suggest more than delineate vs sharp precise lines that define. Also commanding attention: your use of the eyes to create a focal point in each rendering—deftly using paint with seeming magic to convey the deep animated intelligence of Griff, Maxie, Murphy, and Stanley. Brava!

  5. Oh Dotty, I only wish I was HALF of how articulate you are. Thank you!
