A Three dog Howloween night


Having been inspired by some wonderful talented artists
that I have seen on Etsy recently.
I have been in a  painting mood.

Since it was a beautifully loud stormy day
and I was off of work
Today was the perfect day to paint.


Of course the theme and mood would go to Halloween.





Yes, that is Darla (Boston Terrier)
Stymie ( Black Lab)
and
Sharky the (Golden Betriever) 
Howling at the moon.


I was starting to get crazy and carried away with the painting
and I messed it up.


and then...
I decided that I didn't like it.
that I only loved the doggies,
so....



I cut it off .

and without farther ado here is
A Three Dog Howloween Night.



Have a great Friday everyone
See y'all soon

Wow, Leslie! That is great--I didn't know you could do that. I didn't think it looked bad before either though :)

girl! I had no idea that you could paint like that!!! also, I'm a big fan of halloween! There's just something magical about it I love!!! I love your picture and the costumes on the dogs are too cute! My baby is obsessed with dogs or woof woof as he calls them. I thought we lost woof woof today. I almost had a heart attack. He was in my pocket book thank GOD! He carries woof woof around with him every where.

Have you ever thought about painting halloween tin buckets/pails for extra side money? There is this one blog and this chic makes killer money doing this! Girl you could make some serious dough!

check it out and tell me what you think!

I LOVE THIS! The trees look great, and you captured the clouds against the moon perfectly-just too fun! The black dog reminds me of my beagle, we used to howl at the moon together:@)
