Our Watcher

This is Jet, our Airedale. He's not a show dog, but is all we want in a companion and "watcher." He's a purebred, and our third Airedale over the years. We've enjoyed Dobermans and Welch Terriers also, but right now Jet is our only dog. He's a great one, though, and we enjoy watching him play with Patches, our mini wethered goat. He also keeps the ATVers who go up and down our alley on their guard. He loves to raise dust in an effort to get out and 'greet' them, lol!

Here is another picture taken the day we brought him home:

Patches wanted to show him who was boss, and our little Welsh Terrier (Jake, who passed last January) just wasn't interested at all.

Jet now is bigger that Patches, but they get along well.

Grumpy Kitty

This is a colored pencil, about 9 x 12. I had a hard time thinking of a good title for this one, and finally settled on "Grumpy Kitty." The working title was "Me and My Friends are Sad," but I opted for the shorter name.

I'm glad to hear any comments! And thanks for looking.

First Comments

This is a colored pencil piece called Dappled Nap, Mexican Wolf. It's about 8 x 10, from a photo I took at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.

I've been following blogs, and this is my first posting of my own. I will post new drawings and paintings, along with photos of things that interest me. Stay tuned for more.
