I could not help but get a huge smile on my face when Vern's latest painting popped up upon my computer moniter. Don't you agree he has a real gift for doing these portraits? He writes the following on his blog:
Melosia is an older girl (8 yrs.) who is very laid back, although she looks like she would like to lick you to death...ha! She loves to be petted and is anxiously waiting for a new home. She is currently at D'Arcy's A.R.C. animal rescue center in Winnipeg. If anyone would like to adopt Melosia or purchase this painting, please contact the shelter and they will name the price with all proceeds going to them.
Vern plans to start painting the older and larger dogs because he doesn't feel they get adopted as quickly. Please stop by his blog and view his other wonderfuls works!
