‘dreaming buddha’

watercolor 7 x 10   9/2019

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.’
   ― Milan Kundera

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.

‘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.

Snow in Crestline, California 2/26/2011

This is my dog Buddha trudging up a bank in front of our house. He is training for a Donner Pass outing. We have over 2 feet and two more expected today. We still have power. Well, of course, I wouldn’t be typing this if we didn’t. We have a gas stove, so no matter what we will have warm food.
Looks like it is going to be some time before we get out. Couldn’t even walk in this without snow shoes. It is really beautiful. All white and fuffy.

I know a lab like this one. He is everyone’s friend and he especially loves the lady dogs.
