I've been painting it seems forever, although there were gaps of years here and there that I didn't pick up a brush. The late 80s brought the Macintosh computer into my world and it took over my creativity. But on occasion I would still turn out a painting for a special occasion. In 1989 I painted this very nostalgic subject... Boxer puppies. It was a wedding present for my cousin. This watercolor painting is of 2 generations of Boxers I raised.
I no longer have dogs (haven't had for 20+ years), only cats and I often miss the 'dog' companion connection. This brings back fond memories of Indiana, being home on the farm and of my far off cousins The Hattons.
