The Lovely Grace Eichi


I was paging through Dominique Eichi's very interesting blog and came across this wonderful photo of her friend Grace. I emailed Dominique to ask permission to reference her photo, but because her web site is under construction (still worth viewing), I'm not sure she got the message. Sorry Dominique, I was inspired, couldn't wait (always been my downfall), so I painted away yesterday, and now all I can say is, if you like it, I'll be very happy to mail it as my gift to you. I just listed my email on my profile page if you want to forward your address. What a beautiful girl Grace is, (I think she is a chocolate lab). It was a good bit of fun painting her.

  1. Wow, this is really great, and you are so nice to just give it to her! Dominique, it's your lucky day! Okay, this is making me want to paint another dog. I just love dog paintings.

  2. Awww, such a sweet pup...you did a nice job, Vern. I think I could find you a few dog photos on my site, I would love for you to "gift" me one of your paintings! The blogosphere is just full of such useable photos, isn't it? Wish sometimes people would just write "here - use this if you want!" ;-) And of those I have used like you did, no complaints.

  3. Camille, I think I was inspired by the Lab "you" painted. And Pattie, you know when you see something that moves you, well that's what really matters. Dominique is such a wonderful person, always supporting everyone, so I was very happy to do this. Thank you both for stopping by.

  9. Theresa, thanks so much. Your comments are always wonderful to receive and I so enjoy your paintings and blog.

    Sheila, great to see you back and thank you. Some of those verification words are quite odd at times aren't they?

    Akiko, I am humbled by your comments. I learn wherever I can, and your paintings are a constant inspiration and example of excellence for me. Nobody paints eyes the way you do. Thank you.

  10. What a beautiful painting of a beautiful pup!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your nice words. I am seriously thinking of joining the DSFDF challenge group. I have been admiring everyone's work there. I just didnt want to commit until I had the time but in actuality, the challenge and inspiration is what I really need.
    Thank you for the encouragement.
