we had to put sasha down today, march 12 – she was 18 years old – she was the best dog ever and we’ll miss her.

I’m an artist and musician, driven to my passion for creating new art each day, wanting to get better, painting to keep focused and sober and happy and at peace, and hoping to inspire those who see my work. Peace!

    Lovely portrayal, Tom, do you do commissions? I have a few of my Cavvies in different mediums, watercolour my favourite so far. I got a lovely set (not of my dogs but the four different Cavvie colourings) from a guy in America a few years back, he does beautiful watercolours. do you prefer pastels? Thanks for appreciating my Cavvie pic/s. Bron Reid

    My goodness , She sure holds her age well, she probably uses Revlon to keep her looking good and if she is a he..boys use that also..lol..seriously what a beautiful baby..her eyes show how sweet she is..you did a wonderful job …Sherri :):)

  • she sure does! can’t see or hear too well anymore, but that border collie/american eskimo mix keeps her frisky and sharp as a tack! she has been the most wonderful dog! i did this one from a photograph i snapped of her right after saying, “wanna go for a walk?” :)
