Julie and Glen

It felt great to finish yet another print yesterday. With technically 10 done, there are two left to start. This morning I went through dog images waiting in the queue. My sister-in-law Lois, has had some great dogs in their house over the years. Recently they lost Julie, a wonderful old yellow lab. Lois keeps putting in a plug every so often for wanting an image of Julie created. I always enjoyed visiting the old girl because she was so darn sweet. A month ago, Lois passed along a new image that struck me as very worthy. Julie happens to be sitting looking up at “Grandpa Glen”, Lois’s dad. Glen and his wife are both in poor health at the moment and Lois has her hands full. Oh, the joys of hospitals, rehab, etc. with elderly parents. This will  be a nice gift as their households go through some major transitions. Below is the start of Julie & Glen.

I typically don’t work with the human form, well, not since school. Every once in a while I do some figure sketches, but nothing recently. There is such a special relationship between dogs and people that would be nice to capture.  Maybe this is the start of a different series…. hmmm.  I’ve started looking for more images in my files to consider for future prints or drawings. I’m looking forward to seeing how these two friends join together in this print.
