DAY 7 DOG-A-DAY – MEET SPRINGER SPANIEL “WINSTON”

DAY 7 …WOW A WEEK HAS PASSED!!!

MEET “WINSTON”

The Springer Spaniel

SIR WINSTON

I knew the SECOND I saw the photo of Winston that I HAD to paint him. For ONE, I have a total soft spot for Springer Spaniels. We had one when I was a teenager named “Millie”..and honest to God she was the sweetest dog I have ever owned in my life…and perhaps the softest too.

SPRINGER SPANIEL PUPPY – I MEAN….SO CUTE!!!!!

HERE ARE 5 FACTS ABOUT SPRINGER SPANIELS:

  1. The Breed originates in England – another dog that barks with an English accent!
  2. Known to be INCREDIBLY AFFECTIONATE
  3. GREAT with other dogs.Kids and Strangers -maybe not such good guard dogs 🙂
  4. They get to be about 50 lbs.
  5. Like the tee shirts at J Crew – the Spring Spaniel comes in MANY COLORS :  Black & White, Black White & Tan, Liver & White, Liver White & Tan White & Black White & Liver

DAY 5 DOG-A-DAY MEET “OLLIE”

I LOVE ALL OF YOUR DOGS!

Thank you so much for sharing them with me….

I am super excited to introduce you to

“OLLIE”

HIs Mamma says – “Ollie  is half Shiba Inu (which really shows in his independent, curious, training-
resistant, but cuddly
personality) and half Cocker Spaniel.  He is SO MUCH trouble, but he is also very endearing and
loyal to us.  He lies at my feet on the couch every night while I read, and he thinks he runs the
universe.”
Ollie sounds like my kind of dog!!!!!

SCARLETT

 This beautiful Black Lab, is named for her Southern Roots. She was adopted 6 years ago at a shelter in Georgia. I was mesmerized by this photo … and loved painting her sleeping. There is just something so yummy about a snuggled up dog, they make sleep look so very enticing.

Do you have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel??? I love the name! It sounds so regal. This could be a coincidence but I notice that often people who have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel  have TWO of them…they seem to do well with a friend!

I have having such a great time painting a DOG-A-Day

If you would like your pet painted in the D0G-A-DAY PAINTING CHALLENGE – email your photos to info@leslidevito.com.  You may submit photos for consideration Through SUNDAY. 

Remember the paintings are available for purchase on a  first come first serve basis. Owners of dogs submitted will be notified prior to their painting being listed. It is my hope that those submitting intend to purchase their painting…as dozens have applied, but all paintings are available to the public and are not considered custom work.

COMING IN FEBRUARY – A DOG PAINTING A DAY

I LOVE DOGS

I LOVE PAINTING

Last fall I made the VERY difficult decision to stop taking commission work. I have LOVED painting custom pet portraits and plan to return to them in the future but I need to devote my painting time to my original painting to continue growing as an ARTIST.
