me and my shadow

Sophie is a 14 lb Bichon Frise mix who thinks she is a big dog. Unafraid of most dogs, it can be a little embarrassing as I smile and make excuses for my fierce little white dog. However, this mighty little dog is desperately afraid of storm drains and refuses to budge unless we cross the street to make a wide circle around them. She then looks back and gives me that "there is possibly something creepy lurking under that drain cover" face. Actually, I have to agree with her.

I suspected Sophie was a dog, but I didn't guess she was so adorable! Thanks for posting her beautiful portrait.

She is adorable and a great scouting partner. Dogs truly are our best friends. I have two dogs, a cat and a horse.

Your work never ceases to amaze me. Of course, the dog is a differnt story. I had a dog that was repelled by storm drains (golden retriever). That and other habits had her on my nerves constantly. So I don't think I'll be drawing her.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. When I saw her shadow I knew I had to paint it. She just came with the shadow.
