Julie Beth Paints Dotty

We were recently honored with the gift of a painting of our late dog, Dotty, by my sister, Julie. She recently retired and took up painting, approaching it with the care and tenacity she developed to excel at her career in education. I always said she had a good sense for art; couldn’t be more proud of her growing skill with oil paint. Check out her work here.

Dotty was an enthusiastic, hard-working blue heeler (Australian cattle dog) that was dumped near our ranch in 2004. She loved barking and being the center of things, winning our neighborhood’s Fourth of July parade Best Dressed Dog contest three years running. Julie truly captured her energetic sweetness in this painting.
