Painting in the Bosque County area

Took Trudy, 8 year old adopted dog, and headed South to paint with several other artists in Bosque County.  Had a delightful time.  Every night we all ate together and usually had our lunches together.  Found a motel that would let you keep your dog with you for an additional $50.  Dog and I took walks together every day and she loved being a part of the fun of sharing a glass of wine with other artists.

One day it was so cold that I set up a still life in motel room and painted there.  Here is an image.

New Dog in my Life

One month ago, I adopted an 8 year old Australian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever (looks like a large Border Collie at 66 pounds) named Trudy.  The Humane Society told me she had some hip problems that have turned out to be Arthritis in the rear knees.  So, she gets some injections for pain, Acupuncture, and Previcox by mouth for pain, plus Glucosamine/Chondroitin,MSM every meal.  Am I hooked?  You bethcha.  She is one sweetheart.  Also putting in an invisible fence that is not working at this moment.  Also taking off some of that weight to make her knees feel better.  Here is a photo of the lovely lady.
