SPARKLE - DOG - A - DAY 20! Sparkle is the perfect dog on a snowy day! Sparkle is one half of another pair of pups- I will feature her pal -“Pugsley”
tomorrow. “This is Sparkle, a 2 year old Poo-chon who my daughter fell in love with one day when I took my three children to a local breeder “just for fun” and to “look” at the puppies. Much to my husbands dismay we surprised him with a new puppy and Sparkle completed our family as our FOURTH dog. Sparkle is a bundle of energy! She is always looking for something to chase or a toy of my children’s to eat. When she finally calms down she loves to give kisses and cuddle. Sparkle is usually found in my daughters arms or anywhere near her. “ #dogaday#adogaday#dogpaintings#dogpainting#dogportrait#lovedogs#dogsdaily#dogsofinstagram#dogoftheday#leslidevitopaintings#poochon#poochonsofinstagram#poochonlove
This is a portrait of my dog Jasper which I am doing to enter into the @jacksons_competitions. It’s 40 x 40cm in size, I have found it really enjoyable painting on this bigger size, so think I will try something even bigger after this one 🐾
Literally overheard a gal saying “Look at that dawg playin’ a piano!” yesterday while staring at this painting of a dog sitting at a piano as if indeed playing it. Oh Tennessee, you amuse me. 🎹 🖼 #statingtheobvious#tennessee#dogpaintings
LANGLEE-DOG - A - DAY 19 - The month is flying!!! Today’s beautiful dog is the other half of the dynamic duo - aka - “Langlee and Little Dog” -
“Langlee is a 7 years old yellow lab -
sweet, sensitive and very loyal and much beloved by her family. She LOVES to swim and hike and ski and play at the beach and in the snow. When she is not playing with the kids, she loves to bask in the sun. Even in winter, she finds a sunny spot on the floor and stretches out to warm her bones. As fearless as she is in the mountains and at the beach, she is very scared of loud noises and hides under the bed when she hears thunder or fireworks or any loud noises. Her eyes and face are extremely expressive and I always think Langlee is trying to tell us with her eyes how much she loves us. Langlee loves to snuggle and sleep with the kids and They ADORE her!! Langlee’s partner in crime is “Little Dog” . He was abandoned in our neighborhood and we found him one morning when Langlee and I were walking the kids to school. We thought we would only be taking care of him until we found his owners, but that was 5 years ago...Little Dog (or LD as he is affectionately called) is now officially part of our family and Langlee loves him too!! ! #dogaday#adogaday#dogpaintings#dogpainting#dogportrait#lovedogs#dogsdaily#dogsofinstagram#dogoftheday#leslidevitopaintings#tibetanterrier#tibetterrier#yellowlab#labradorretriever#labradorpainting#yellowlabsofinstagram

LITTLE DOG - DOG - A - DAY 18 - The next two “ Dog - A-Day” paintings - are a pair . They are inseparable- like salt and pepper, and as different as night and day - as big and little - in fact - meet “Little Dog. “ ... “Yes, that is his name because we found him in our neighborhood one day when we were walking to school. We didn’t think we would be keeping him so we started calling him Little Dog. As days and weeks went by and no one was claiming him, LD slowly became part our family. We tried changing his name a couple of times but it just stuck.
We don’t know for sure what breed LD is or even how old he is. He looks a lot like a Tibetan Terrier so we like to think that’s what he is. In Tibet, Tibetan Terriers were raised by Buddhist monks. Known as the "Holy Dogs of Tibet," Tibetan Terriers were never sold, only given as gifts by monks to promote good fortune. We like to think that finding LD was a stroke of luck for our family. He has certainly brought us a lot of love and good fortune!
LD loves our family fiercely and is sometimes a bit overzealous in his loyalty and in protecting our home from strangers. The mailman and all other delivery people hate LD. He barks like crazy whenever anyone new shows up at our door. But he is the sweetest and gentlest and most loving puppy to our family. We LOVE him!!!
He and Langlee (our yellow Lab and tomorrow’s dog) are inseparable and LD protects Langlee against dogs 3 times his size whenever we go to the dog park. He is a bit crazy but super sweet.” We should ALL be so lucky as to have a Little Dog in our corner! #dogaday#adogaday#dogpaintings#dogpainting#dogportrait#lovedogs#dogsdaily#dogsofinstagram#dogoftheday#leslidevitopaintings#tibetanterrier#tibetterrier
Now all my abilities are put to proof 😂 I really wasn’t sure I could commit to create a watercolor of the front view of the dog walking 🐶 but I hardly say NO specially when I love my subject, and in this case I love Nellie very much. So, I decided to put my brushes to work 🎨 we are half way there but I’m confident she’s at least looking like herself 😇 .
