oil on moleskin paper

This painting has been done for Angela Elledge's book for the Texas Moleskin Round-Up. Angela and I were out painting en plein air one day when her daughter stopped by the park with their dog Cowgirl. How Texas is that! Couldn't resist snapping a few photos of this precious pup, which resulted in my moleskin entry for Angela's book. 


  1. Ah, what a beauty this particular! Perfect for Angela who always lifts hearts (especially my own) with her beautiful pet portraits!

  2. I just found you through Fading Rose. I have scrolled through many of your paintings and I'm in awe! But Cowgirl takes the cake! What a love she is and what a great painting!

  3. Ann, my heart is going pitter patter over this wonderful painting of Cowgirl. I completely forgot about her visiting us that day and I am thrilled you thought of painting her; thank you so very much.

    Can we please go to lunch/dinner soon? Work is consuming my entire life right now, but soon I will have lots of free time!

  4. Your animals are very lively and colorful. Beautiful work.
