30 Paintings in 30 Days - NUMBER 13

"The Best Dog in the Whole World"
9" x 12"
oil on Raymar canvasboard

Hasty Herman - our little black and tan dachshund - 
left this world just over 4 years ago.
He was almost 10.
I have painted him many times,
but found this photo this
morning, and it's so 
typically HERMAN.
He would plop down
on just anything
that was creating a soft spot.

This shoe area in the laundry room 
suited him just fine -
using Dad's shoes as a chin rest.
A little paint shine - this time of day
it's unavoidable.

and remembrance
