Moses – Stunningly Handsome Boxer

When I first met Moses I couldn’t believe how gorgeous he was.  His owner sent me a really cute image of his face and I knew he was a looker, but when I met him in person, all I could say was “Wow”.  He’s 92 pounds of strong, handsome, boxer.  (This is going to be a wall portrait that will go over a stone fireplace.)

He’s not just a pretty face.  As you can probably imagine, he’s also quite the athlete.

His owner brought a gallon jug of water to make sure he could drink whenever he wanted . . . and drink he did.

He has so many interesting characteristics, we wanted to focus on a few that make him so unique . . .

. . . and even though he has the most beautiful coloring, I couldn’t resist trying one image in black and white.  What a face!

Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro

I recently had the opportunity to see the unloading of wild horses and burros in Virginia with my friend, Kathy Winkler, who is a wonderful painter.  They were brought here by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) who rounded them up in Illinois.  They are all descendants of animals that were released or escaped from Spanish explorers, ranchers, miners, the U.S. Cavalry, and American Indians.  If it looks like they are at risk of not having enough food or water, the BLM gathers them and offers them for adoption to qualified applicants.  To find out more about the program, visit:  http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/wild_horse_and_burro.html

German Shepherds – Jager and Panzer

Jager and Panzer are beautiful German Shepherds and the most well-trained dogs I’ve probably ever met.  We went in search of a variety of outdoor locations . . .shepherds_gate
