Dog days of summer by Roxanne Spradlin

Dixie, a 14 year old chocolate lab, is an adored family pet. She's been a wonderful friend for many years. She is still pretty spry for her age but is beginning to slow down. These days she spends more time resting than running. I'm amazed at how much she can sleep. Recently, I painted her portrait, in honor of a 'good ole dog' that reminds us that is okay to be a little lazy ever once in awhile!

  1. Our pets are the best and should be immortalized on canvas. It looks like you captured her "mid-bark", right in the middle of her telling you a story, very nice, Roxanne.

  2. Am sure Dixie is a loved and adored family pet, well done on her portrait!
