Veterans Day

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

Some of you folks probably remember this painting from the past. I added a few choice strokes of color and developed it a little more for this post.
I just felt an overwhelming need to pay tribute to all those in service to this wonderful country. Honoring patriotism and God needs to take a high priority in these very trying times.

Psalm 16:8 I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
I've been slow on posting because my puter went kaput. Had to have the hard drive replaced. No back up...Wahh...wahhh. Ah but now the computer is running better than ever.

Dolly by Angela Elledge

A very talented artist, Angela Elledge, painted this in my moleskin for the Flying Moleskin project!!
It's a memorial tribute to my little unconditional friend, Dolly, who I had to part with on Feb. 25th of this year. She was my faithful companion for seventeen great years.

My photo of Dolly was downright blurry so Angela painted from a photo of a different toy poodle of similar color. I can sure see my girl's bright eyes and smile in this painting! What a beautiful job!

This was tremendously thoughtful of you, Angela! Can't wait to have the book in my hands! Thank You!


  1. oh the Dolly painting is so dear....(looks just like her!)
    & Your Veteran's day painting is wonderful.

  2. I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing.

  3. I remember your tribute painting to the veterans Dean, thanks for posting it again, it's a winner!

  4. What a moving painting! Bummer about your computer, glad you're back up and running. How cute is Dolly, 17 years is a pretty good run. What a lovely tribute:)

  5. I remember this painting, too, loved it then and love it now...especially the swipe of paint indicating his fingers.

    I loved painting this Dolly for you, but I do wish it could have been from your photo. Could you please send me some photos of her? I really want to paint the real Dolly and one without that silly seam right down the middle. Please e-mail me!

  6. Really beautiful painting. I love those colors and that gesture, it's just full of emotion. And your sweet Dolly is fantastic. What a wonderful gift!
