Otis and Riley and a painting

A nice rain fell last night and this morning everything smelled so fresh! Otis and Riley were not sure they wanted to come outside because they didn't want to get their feet wet. They needed a little coaxing.




Riley had a drink from a small puddle he found on the picnic table.




Then it was back inside and they resumed their positions on the back of the sofa.

Yesterday I spent some time painting ~ a beach scene (watercolor).




I painted this one specifically for a gift shop at the beach where I've been selling my note cards ~ the Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach, NC. I'm thrilled they're doing so well, and beachy things are always fun to paint.

Beautiful beach, makes me want to be there...
My cat lies the same way on my sofa; it is funny how animals find comfort in the strangest places.;)

Such cute pictures of "the guys". I especially like how the 2 of them are both enjoying the back of the couch at the same time.

Your beach picture is adorable.

Donna, Otis and Reilly are just the cutest little doggies!! They are great! Love the beach painting! When I go to the beach Wrightsville is where I usually go. Our friends have a client with a condo right on the beach. We might go down for a visit in Sept.

Hi Donna,
Have missed coming by seeing Otis and Riley! Posh and Becks are the same after a good rain and lick all the water off the deck - even with a full bowl of water inside. Go figure.
LOVE that watercolor painting!
Hope you are well. Have a great day!
Sandy
