Ritual

"No love like dog love"
NFS
One 'ritual' when you share your life with a dog is the walk. This is Morey who was a wonderful yellow lab who lived just across our narrow beachside road. We called him our "it takes a village" dog because his person worked days and I would bring him outside for some yard lounging in the sun, or walk him to the beach. 
It takes so little to please a dog and I can see his jaunty step, nose to the wind as we make our way. 
This was my interpretation for the "Ritual" challenge and it will be hanging in our Girls Just Wanna Paint show at Thayer Academy which opens on Thursday November 21st. 
Check out our site for details.

What a great painting! I can see what a great pup this guy is, so jaunty, and the lead is awesome. I love it.
