Puppy Dog Tales!



Captain Rupert bounced back from yet another holiday, with tales of new puppy dog friends. What fun and games he told me about as he shared his holiday snaps.




Sorry for another brief interlude, K has been sailing again, (that's it for a while). We drove off to north Germany for a windy week on a lovely sandy beach. It was a long and tiring drive towing a boat. Great sailing for K and I got some painting done. I did not take any holiday photos, which was a shame, but you can only take so many pictures sitting on the beach at a sailing regatta. Its nice to be home and find lots of tasty veg in the garden, and some sunshine!







Captain Rupert is of course enjoying being back in the garden. He has a new friend in the garden two, the resident Robin from the vegetable patch. I'm sure they are hatching a scheme for Captain Rupert have a grand vegetable feast!!






Ps... the lovely blue paint colour is light teal in dulux heritage range.

Lovely to see a post from you Jo and I love Captain Rupert's holiday photos, what an adorable new friend he has made. My Captain Rupert doll says "Hi" and he hopes you are having carrot cake for tea.
Love JackieMx

The little puppy dog has got such an usual coat, rather like CR! I shall look forward to some of your paintings being revealed, maybe some inspired by your break to Germany? Great special effects on your photos, it reminds me of the opening scene to the TV programme Bagpuss, would you believe! x

Of course, waiting to see paintings. LOL both Captain and the pup look like animated stuffed animals. What fun.

Oh, this is so charming. When I was little we had a white rabbit and a black cocker spaniel named Cindy. The two of them played together, I so loved to watch them. I love Captain Rupert! Karen

Hello,thanks for visiting my blog. Looking at you dog and rabbit photo reminds me of a friend of mine who had a house rabbit and a Jack Russell, not a combination I would recommend! Lovely artwork.

Joanna- I absolutely love your blog and paintings! I was wondering if I could feature yours as a 'Featured Blog to Visit' on my blog and link to your shop. Your paintings should be featured in magazines!
