I don't think it will surprise those who know me that at Christmas time we hang stockings on the mantlepiece for our dogs! Admittedly we don't leave them alone overnight with the dogs......... In the painting here, Angel looks as though she is deciding what to put on her list for Father Christmas. This particular stocking is one of my favourites - surprise, surprise! It is gorgeous and soft and Angel always wants to play with it, but as with a couple of other special Christmas Dalmatians, she is only allowed a gentle play under close supervision.
Look carefully at the top of the mantlepiece and see if you can 'spot' anything there.
This painting comes as a reminder that Christmas is rapidly approaching - especially for artists like myself for whom it is the busiest time of year, so if you are thinking about commissioning a painting, it will have to be soon!
My new website is nearly ready, so do check it out often as there will be a selection of prints and cards available to purchase.
This painting is straight off the easel and will need to dry for several days before it can be shipped
