Day 37 of my one a day resolution: I’m trying to add a little personality to my charcoal sketches. This puppy was born in rescue. As you would expect, the entire litter was quickly adopted. They have gown into wonderful dogs and are planning a reunion soon…
Day 21 of my one a day resolution: I hope people like looking at huskies as much as I like drawing them! Tonight I did another charcoal sketch of my friend’s husky, Tia. She lost Tia a week or two before I lost Juno, so I know she still feels the emptiness. Drawing helps me…I hope the drawings help her too.
Day one of my one a day resolution: Meet Meadow. She is a five-year-old Siberian husky who has been a guest with MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue for over a year. She has a sweet disposition and is wonderful with children. Her only flaw; she suffers from a seizure disorder. Despite the fact that her seizures are completely controlled by medication, people seem afraid to commit to her. This sketch of Meadow was done on paper with a pencil.
Every day I watch my old dog get a little bit older. I watch her stumble a bit more and eat a bit less. I wonder if she will be here tomorrow. And somehow, miraculously, she is. So I continue watching my old dog get older.
This is the last painting I did of Junie. I’m sure I will paint others, but for now, this one tells her story.

I know I shouldn’t have favorites, but Flora was my favorite. Sadly, we lost her to cancer almost two years ago. Typical of her breed, she often slept curled in a “husky ball.” This painting captures a memory I hold very close to my heart!
This painting was commissioned several years ago. It is still one of my favorites! I lve the expression of the leader! So determined!
