July 4, "Roxie"

And this is the one I painted this morning, in the sun, with a bit of difficulty seeing whether the colors were on or not, so I had to retreat to the garage where I was able to adjust a bit here and there.  We are at my brother-in-laws and there's a number of art-interested grandchildren around who are fascinated by my painting...  pretty fun to paint for an eager audience!
 And here is what Cheryl has written about Roxie, our dog of the day, a good old black lab mix!

Roxie is a lab mix. We saw her picture on the internet. She was at our local shelter. Roxie was scheduled to be euthanized in two hours. She reminded us of our previous dog who had died a year earlier.  Both were neglected and abused.  Both had many health issues to deal with and were emaciated.  When we saw Roxie, we knew it was time to help another dog in need.  We went to get her immediately!  Our vet helped her health issues.   With time, a lot of TLC, and lots of patience, Roxie has become a very sweet and loving dog.  We are blessed and happy to have her in our lives.  She is a lucky dog, but WE are even luckier to have HER!  We Love her!
