New Watercolour Series: Life with My Human

Thank you everyone who gave me suggestions for a title for this Dog Series I've been working on since January. All the ideas resulted in the title, 'Life with My Human'. It is a watercolour series which attempts to show the bond between a dog and it's owner, by painting a specific activity they do together. 
At my friend,  Win, http://windinnart.blogspot.com/, suggestion I left the title without the word dog in it so I can branch out to other pets too. 

The photos I saw of this dog, made me think that 'Bruce' is game for any adventure with HIS human. Even though you can see he is a mature dog, Bruce is still willing to try something new. Here is Bruce, this summer, co-piloting his owner's new sailboat! I wonder what he is thinking? "Where's the breeze?"

When I painted this owner's dog earlier this year I vowed I would paint one of her other dog who is just as sweet. It is a small painting but I just love the colours. 

Jojo is always looking for loving with everyone she meets. Showcasing her in a pile of autumn leaves seemed so appropriate. You know she is just waiting for a tummy rub!

These are both such wonderful paintings, Eileen - they've got that warm, fuzzy feel that is so indicative of life with a beloved pet. I'm loving this series, and thanks for the tag!
