Ghost Dog

It's funny how everytime I move, I wind up involved in some new sort of creative endeavor. I haven't painted too much since I have been here--unless you count all of the paint I've put on my walls! I have done a few decorating consultations, but mostly I have been spiffing up my own house and working in my garden, and now I am busy building an Ethics class that I will be teaching this summer. A Humanities scholar is never bored!
Recently one of my friends lost her beloved companion, so I was inspired to paint this ghostly portrait of him. If all dogs go to heaven, then I believe it is a place full of trees--which are full of squirrels!
