How do you paint heartbreak?   I googled this phrase this morning after having to put our sweet little Tubby down unexpectantly.  He wasn't feeling good for several weeks and while he was in for his dental exam the doctor found a large tumor.  I hate cancer.  It was obvious we needed to put his comfort before our own agony and say goodbye.

So, most of today has been a blur.  I was going to blow off painting anything.   It's tough to paint without my little studio buddy.  This evening I decided to try a very quick sketch of him.  While it's far from my's all I can do today.  Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.  Goodbye little guy!  

Heartbreak,  6x8, pastel


  1. I am so sorry Cindy, we have one of our own and I am already dreading the day she is not with us. Hugs.

    1. The pastel you did is beautiful by the way!

  2. Sorry for your loss. I know how hard that is. No one loves as well as our dogs do. This is a beautiful pastel.

  3. They sure know how to give great joy and great heartache when gone. Sorry for your loss Cindy.
