Oil on canvas, 16x16
During a slow time in a show last summer in Manayunk, just outside of Philadelphia, I took this photo of a woman and her dog, who is crazy about bananas. The dog - an older guy - was totally and completely focused on the woman's banana, in spite of all sorts of people and activity nearby (which I didn't paint).
It made me very happy to make this painting. I am still a novice at painting people, but I like the way she came out, and I like the reflections in the window, too, and the people inside the coffee shop. The woman who bought this piece loved it, and is a collector of dog art, so how perfect!
***"House of Cards" fans, this one's for you
Yup, it's the peachoid! And there really is a Gaffney, SC, too.
Why the peachoid is yellow, I don't know.

Dog of the Day
It's Tyler! He's Erika and Paul's dog, and is sort of the
brown-eyed version of Jojo. I guess they are step-siblings? Or maybe just cousins.

A final thought
"There is a basic law that attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces - and success, instead of eluding him, flows toward him."
