Sophie, a very relaxed dog…as long as I am close by!

This post was first published in July 2015 when I was at the beginning of my journey as a blogger and an artist. Since then, I have filled many sketchbooks, and painted more dogs.
At the end of this post, I have added recent photos of Sophie, our Maltese. On Tuesday of this week, we said goodbye to our faithful companion. She had been sick for the last three years and she was tired. It was her time. She is sorely missed.
Sketch completed with 2B pencil and watercolour in Pentalic Aqua Journal.
In both sketches, she is living la vida loca.
Her favourite pillow is under my kitchen chair where she is quite happy to wait for me to finish whatever I am doing. It keeps her within visual distance of the fridge where at any moment, she could be offered a piece of cheese or carrot. Ahhhhh, life is good!
