Tybee and Scout

Tybee and Scout                                            16x20 acrylic on canvas

This year has been so super busy with gardening that I've failed to keep up with my blog.  I apologize, but we have two full freezers to show for it!  The fall garden is not so labor intensive, as we basically just eat out of it and don't can or freeze produce from it.... well, maybe some broccoli if we don't eat it all up!

This commission was done in early summer for a dear friend whose husband was retiring from the military, hence his boots.  The older terrier, Tybee, is sadly gone.  The new pup, Scout, is their new baby in the house.  This composition combined all the elements to tell a personal story.  I think it works well.
