There is definitely a fierce issue here - the fierce need to take a break from working and play with the animals. Awesome work.

This is wonderful and prefect for the topic.

This is awesome! Is that a picture of Henry on the wall or one of his girlfriends? Love this Ginger and I owe you a coffee :)

Actually that is a picture of Winston the Wonderhound, or Agent 72 as he is known on his blog. He and his friend Lennox the dragon are featured in this painting.

I haven't kept Winston's adventures up to date, but will if I get a break in between illustration assignments. Winston passed away in 2004 and it took us until 2007 to find Henry. Although they are both beagles, they are as different as night and day. It is like our own children, they are all so different from each other as well.

This is truly great! Now that the kids are out of school for the summer, I have to agree -- sometimes the distraction gets pretty fierce.

Mônica said...

Oh, a great illustration of you and Winston, Ginger. And his friend Lennox sure looks fierce!
I'm glad you have Henry now... :-)

Ha! Ha! These things are what makes life great! Very nicely done. I don't understand why you would want to simplify your style, though!
