Nadja

This is "Nadja Missouri".  She was my daughters mini dachshund for 16 years...and such a beautiful dog.  I enjoyed painting this little girl. 
Also, my daughter Carin is slowly healing and the doctors told her today she can go back to work August 13th.  Everyday she feels better.  I'm smiling again!!!

  10. I've just spent a wonderful time browsing through your most recent posts. You're work is always inspiring and I love this one of Nadja. I'm pleased to read that Carin is doing so well. It must have been an anxious time for you all.
    I hope you don't mind but I've given you a mention on my most recent blog post. You played a part in kicking my backside to do some more art and I'm very grateful. ;-)
