I spent a delightful afternoon at Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane painting a Pet Portrait for W.A.A.A.G., a non-profit that helps prevent cruelty to animals and helps them find forever homes.

I met the nicest group of volunteers dedicated to their goal and I especially enjoyed meeting Harry, a wonderful dog that is looking for his forever home.  He was my model for the painting. Here are some scenes from the day and notes.

Almost every morning I walk my dogs along a path at the Shenandoah River down to the Dog Park.  They love it and so do I.  It’s a beautiful place in any season but it’s particularly lovely right now as the Bluebells are blooming.  I posted several photos on my Facebook page earlier this week (check that out here) and everyone thought it would make a great painting.  So at Kid’s Painting class yesterday they painted it.  Great job everyone!
