When your world moves too fast

and you lose yourself in the chaos,

introduce yourself

to each color of the sunset. 

Reacquaint yourself with the earth

beneath your feet.

Thank the air that surrounds you

with every breath you take.

Find yourself

in appreciation life.

This jack rabbit looks like my granddog “Maggie.” It’s just a feeling…a mood that I always seen in Maggie. Unspoken guilt and desire mixed together. Maybe I was channeling Maggie….LOL I am doing doggie daycare for Maggie since her mom went to work at the pottery studio. I’m not much fun but I do talk to her, give her fresh marrow bones and love on her a lot. So…..she is much more in my radar since I have been spending so much time with her. Dogs rock. They absorb your energy but don’t judge ever.

This is a portrait of my Queensland Heeler ‘Maus.’ She passed from this world on October 13, 2019. She was 16 years old. Her passing came 2 months to the day of my other Queensland ‘Buddha.’ I paint these memorials for my pets who have traveled on and I can no longer hold in my arms. This one might have been the most painful…..the painting that is….so it has taken me a very long time to complete. Too many tears to bear and not able to let go of her form. They both gave me great love and I loved them the same in return. I drew a final sketch the morning before Maus died. I knew she was ill and would not be with me much longer. The vet said she was not in pain and that I would have her another few months. It was good news but I sensed that she would be gone quickly. When I draw I feel the soul alive in my fingers when I touch the body with my eyes so it was important to touch her that way in one last drawing. They were my beloved companions.

Both dogs spent most of their lives running in the mountain woods and swimming in the lake. Maus after a dip in the lake.

This painting is my good bye to my beautiful dog ‘Buddha.’ He was on this earth for 15 years leaving us a month ago still a happy and peaceful dog despite his aged disabilities. ‘Buddha’ brought joy to everyone he touched. I miss him terribly and will never forget his paw print in my life. Everyone who has lived with a beloved dog knows the story.

I have so many drawings of him. Especially during his last year I sketched him many times not wanting to let go but knowing that my time with him was winding down.


Everything in the painting was free form except for both Buddhas and the lotus. I just let it flow. And I cried much of the time.

I captured this one a few years ago midst a nap with his namesake. Strange name for a dog I thought. It just came out of the ethers and it was perfect. He never met a dog, cat or human that he did not like.

Grooming his cat ‘Hari Giri Baba.’ Notice that the cat is relaxed. He loved Buddha and trusted him.

Buddha was the epitome for me of dog’s love for human.


He loved the snow….the deeper the better. First snow was the best….full of excitement. He and Maus would run and run in the first snow.

I’m very fond of pities. One in particular…Diesel….is Buddha’s friend. He and Buddha love to run and play at the Lake. Diesel is a great big dog and full of energy. When they play it is best to grab a tree because they pay no attention to where they run.

‘Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.’

Dogs are simply amazing grace. You can see the entire universe by looking into their eyes.

This commissioned painting illustrates a Lakota creation story about Dog. I hand printed the story around the edge of 15″ x 12″ piece of 300lb watercolor paper.

‘So angry was the Creator over man’s mistreatment of animals that he drew a line wit his finger upon the ground. On one side were the beasts and on the other were the people. The line grew so deep and so wide that neither side could be near the other ever again. But at the last moment, Dog jumped over, to remain forever at man’s side.’

Wonderful story isn’t it?

I painted this red nosed pit bull dog image as a donation to a rescue shelter. Too many unwanted pit bulls. Unfortunately they have become ‘throw away’ pets.

original painted rock by Susi Ruzgerian

‘Waffles’ is an art werk by my friend Susi Ruzgerian. She has painted some wonderful animals. ‘Waffles’ is so comical. I love seeing all her art and I thought that I would share this one.
