Naughty Puppy!

My darling puppy Ray decided that my glasses would make a really great chew toy!  He went to town and here's what is left of my glasses.  I was able to wear them for a few days, even with the crewed up temples and scratched lenses.  But then they split right down the middle of the bridge. 

I tried to order new frames online.  They were an old Guess brand and I found a pair for $75!  Then the company wrote that the frame is no longer being made.  So last night we went to Binyon's and I looked at the new Guess frames.

Luckily, I was able to find a new frame with the same lens dimensions as the old ones.  The guy was able to pop my lenses into the new frames and I was set!!! 

The new frames are purple on the exterior and blue on the interior.  They look kind of black, but not quite. 

So, all is forgiven. 

I did buy Ray some new doggie chew toys

Fall Painting and Ray 9 Months Old

It's been awhile since I've posted anything to my blog. Things have been busy with the beginning of fall term. I have a new job that is much busier than my previous job, so that's taking alot of time. I have lots to learn!

I'm not really taking a painting class this fall, but I can go in and paint with the rest of the class whenever I am able. I've only gone twice this year and here is my start. This is a painting of a cute Chihuahua from the dog park. I don't know her name, but I thought she would make a good subject! This is in oil, 12x16".

I'm also posting a picture of Ray. He was 9 months old on October 13th. He's 17-18 pounds.
