A larger painting today. My internet friend, artist Deb Pero, recently suggested it might be time for another Winslow painting. I don't need much prodding to paint my great bud and constant companion.

Winslow has developed a new habit. On a recent visit with our little grandson he watched intently while we cradled Grayson in our arms, barely able to contain his jealousy. Back home Winslow decided he deserved the same treatment, since he was "our baby". He climbed into my lap and immediately threw himself backward so that I had to catch him in the crook of my arm. There he layed, all splayed out, perfectly content. This has become a nightly ritual. 

Check out Deb's beautiful paintings here.

Hi Don,
This is simply a beautiful portrait of a well-loved friend. I'd be proud to have my signature on this.
Another winner, Don.
Enjoy your Friday.

a wonderful portrait Don and a delightful story... dogs are amazing creatures and Winslow has become special to me through your blog. one of my most favourite paintings of him was 'sun-catcher'. it contained all the elements of an old master to my mind.

Another classic Winslowism.
I do hope you plan to include these heartwarming stories along with your amazing paintings in Winslow's book.

Ha--thanks, Marilyn. Yes, it would be fun to do a book on Winslow.
