Erika, my daughter.. and the puppies! by 

She loved the puppies!!! this was done in ’76 and what fun! Willie at the time our sheep dog met Bottoms and had a wonderful litter of pups to which Erika, only about 9 months old at the time took to immediately! I just had to paint her!

Oil on Canvas and so much fun! Hope you enjoy!

I love to fly….. that’s what I do and what I’ve ever wanted to do and now… well as you can see I am doing just that! Now the wonderful world opens up for others who may want to also fly and capture incredible shots… I have an extra seat up yonder! yup yup yup! (and insurance etc…. :-)

Aerial shots flourish! :-) HUGS!

    Maxy, this is so sweet, precious, and you know I love it!! Gosh, I’m so glad you got these back. I know they mean a lot to you.

  • Thank you so much Frannie! These do have some funny stories behind them too which I might journal but it was great to finally share them. They’ve been on my wall for quite a few years now! :-)
