I had a great time with this painting even though it seemed to go on forever. I kept adding little dogs here and there and had to stop before the pound showed up in the painting. I've listed this painting on eBay and it's scheduled to start tonight.
Every morning at half past nine, Fern leaves home for her morning walk with her dog Foster. As they pass the library Foster quickens his pace toward the entrance to his favorite shop, Bone Appetit. Camped outside his doorway, Henry notices his regular morning customers have lined up and reaches into his apron pocket to make sure he has treats to hand out before he unlocks the door for the day. As Jake and his dog, Lady, round the corner into town and pass in front the Snip ‘n Clip hair salon, he notices Fern in her pretty red and white dotted dress. This may just be the day he gets up enough nerve to ask her if she’d care to join him for a soda at Broomfield’s General Store. Of course this will have to wait until Foster and Lady have had their choice of gourmet treats at his pal, Henry’s shop.
Don't you wish you could just jump into this scene and go have a soda at Broomfield's General Store with Fern and Jake?
Note the little dog playing catch with his owner and the lonely dog at the top of the hill...
These two have captured the heart of Henry, the owner of Bone Appetit.
Jake's dog appears to be a cross between a collie and a wart hog. Oh, the joy of folk art!
Dog guarding the door to his stone cottage...
The scene wraps around the 1 1/2" edges and doesn't need a frame.
I think I'm ready to paint something fattening and quick like some cupcakes!
