Tishie Trouble


"Tishie Trouble"

This little dog is an American Eskimo who belongs to my 96-year-old mother-in-law, Estelle. I have been taking care of her "baby" for a couple of months while she is recuperating from a fall in her home.

In this painting I tried to focus on capturing Tishie's spirit and that mischievous look he gives me every time he's about ready to get into trouble. He will hopefully be returning home to his "mommy" the beginning of June.

  1. Everything about theis delightful painting is brilliant, from 'that' look in his eyes to the range of colours you've selected to show off his beautiful white coat.

  6. I do see a little mischief in those eyes. He's a beautiful pet and I know that "mom and baby" will be glad to be reunited.

  11. You caught her expression perfectly I bet! I know this look from the two sweet American Eskimos that shared our home for many years, Martha White and Aspen. Lovely work.
