~MaggieMae's Portrait (DOT)~

Today I have a very special picture of MaggieMae to post. My sister has been painting since she was a teenager. She came by the talent honestly as our grandmother and at least one great-aunt, one aunt and our mother also had done some oil paintings. I have always admired the talent these ladies had for the canvas and oil paints, and especially my sister! She has only improved with time and had recently done a portrait of a cute little dog owned by her sister-in-law. At that point I knew I had to ask her to paint one of MaggieMae for me.

So... I searched through my photographs of MaggieMae and sent her one I liked the pose best in. I also sent her others (and she'd reviewed ones posted on my blog as well) so that all the best of MaggieMae's character would be seen. I am so ecstatic with the final result! It is everything I knew she could do! I am so proud of my sister for her abilities and talents, and I can hardly wait to get this in the mail and get it framed and on my wall!

She will do commissioned paintings and you can view her other paintings and contact her here at Sunny's Studio.

DOT~New Winter Pics~January 2011

I haven't had the camera on MaggieMae since Christmas pictures. So I decided to get some the other day, and this was before the snowfall of the last two days. She's up to her usual winter thing.

Checking out the neighbor's yard to the one side. (You can see her tail is starting to grow out... now if she will just continue to let me brush it out!)

Sniffing around where the squirrels have been.

Looking to see if the rabbits have been next door in the neighbor's yard on the other side.

And of course looking for squirrels or rabbits on the other side of the road coming into our housing area.
Not much different from any other time of year. Typical MaggieMae.
