This is Molly.  Isn't she cute?!  Molly belongs to my sister or, my sister belongs to Molly.  Molly is very energenic and somewhat of a clown.  She has an extensive list of tricks that she can complete for FOOD.  Her favorite thing.  Molly has taught my sister to give her a treat every time she turns in circles, barks at the treat dish, or comes in the house.  Yes, she is very spoiled.  Molly shares her dog space with Bessie, a fox hound and equaly spoiled. 
I had such fun painting Molly's velvety coat, long ears, stubby legs, fat feet, and hound dog eyes.
This is part of my sister's, Pam, birthday gift.  Her birthday was the 22nd of April.  For 21 days we are the same age!  Poor Mom, two children under the age of one! 
I hope Molly made you smile.


  1. What a gorgeous painting! There used to be a basset hound on our walk until the people moved - I still miss seeing him.

    Our puppy's name is Buddy. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

  2. I believe I commented on your Flickr...however I thought i'd say here this is very well done!

  3. Molly is adorable and your painting is awesome. I love that you say your sister belongs to Molly. That's the way it usually goes. :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm glad to meet you! :)

  4. Beautiful painting! I've been doing 100 dogs, I'd bett focus on doing at least one nice one, most of mine have been sketches or watercolors that need much improvement!
    Thanks for your comment on the cactus!
    Continued success!
