The Sixth Something

My friend Karine and her studio assistant Pono tagged me for The Sixth Something, so I am selecting the sixth photo from my sixth folder on my computer. Meet Rocky and Ruby. Rocky and Ruby are two Dallas weenies I painted last year. Rocky and Ruby live with two large Labs, but that doesn't stop them from being the rulers of all they survey. This was a fun painting because I found the perfect subject for a nice, long, narrow canvas.

Okay, here are six talented friends I am tagging. If you've been tagged already, please disregard.

Linda of Abby Creek Art
Sharon of My New England Life

Laura of The Cat in the Clover
Manon of Hoochie Poochie Studio

Amy at the Pink Pony

Bindu of Transient Lives

James Parker said...

Wow, Nancy, this should be First Something instead of Sixth...absolutely super piece...I can see these two eyeing a spare rib. Oh, and just when you thought it was safe to go back into the blogstream, here I come to inform you that you have been chosen to receive an Art Blog Award. Drop by and pick it up, and while you're there, go to WTTW-Art and see what a wondrous submission Akiko entered.

I saw your blog on organized Doodles, and I thought I would check you out, we lived south of Dallas in Red Oak and I have been to Flower Mound....I love animals we have a Bichon. We have 3 God Children and 2 Grandchildren still in Dallas. Hope you don't mind that I stopped by.

James, thanks for the award, it's my first art award! hooray! I will scooch over there and pick it up.

Hi Sheila, thank you. that canvas just cried out for weenie dogs, don't you think? I love your little pug portrait, wouldn't be surprised if you sell it fast.

Hi Bindu, sorry I missed that on your blog! I'm kind of a newbie at this tagging thing. I promise to do my research next time. : )

Hi Manon! don't smack me for tagging you. Blame Karine!!! She started this whole thing. : )

Hi Polly - welcome! I am usually more prompt than this in replying, but the board of directors is in town this week. oy.

Oh my gosh Valerie, every time I see the painting Fifi Flowers did of you it makes me smile. You are such a cutey. I will go check out this new tag! Howie will be very excited...
