I try and take this walk every morning. Sometimes I bring my pug, sometimes I don't. I have those days where I need to walk fast. Lucy, my Pug, likes to smell every strand of grass, investigate each twig and sign the guestbook at every tree.

This painting was purchased by one of my very favorite collectors. I won't say who because it's a gift and she may want to keep it a surprise. She knows who she is and she is a wonderful supporter of the arts.
