Minnesota Truman

Minnesota Truman

Several weeks ago I shared with you a portrait I did of a basset hound named Truman who lived in Minnesota.  (See that here.)  Last week I got this wonderful photo of Truman with his portrait.  I love it.  But I am sad to report that old Truman is no longer with us.  His family had to let him go recently as his cancer had just gotten to bad to live with.  😦

I know that their Truman was well-loved and am so glad that they shared a small part of him with us.

Minnesota Truman

Minnesota Truman

A month or so ago I got an email from a man in Minnesota inquiring about a painting of a basset hound on my blog that he would like to purchase.  It was an older painting and it had already sold but I told him I would be happy to paint a portrait of his dog.  Turns out, his dog is a basset hound….named Truman!  So we shared stories and photos of his Truman and mine and I painted his Truman for him.

He got it yesterday in the mail and was pleased.  His Truman is very handsome.  Mine was too.  🙂

Snow in Feb Truman looks outTruman wasn’t big on snow (or rain for that matter) so when we had that big snow storm a few years ago it took everything I had to get him to go out to do his “business”.  He would just go out and look around, shake his head and come back inside.

Tru He was a really cute pup who came to live with us when he was just 5 1/2 weeks old.  Spoiled wouldn’t begin to describe him.  But he was so darn cute it was hard not to give him his way.  Click here and here to see more about the TruMonster!  So here’s to you Truman.  We miss you!

 Truman says to lay around, hang out, and relax this new year’s day.  (Yes, that is a sofa that he laying on the back of…he thinks he’s a cat sometimes.) 

Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to paint in the upcoming year.  Happy New Year!
