Cindy belongs to cousin Joyce. I don't know what breed she is but if there's such a thing as an Antarctic dog that's what she would be.  Big hair!!!  Although she has no history of boating activity, Cindy will NOT be left behind when Joyce and Don go fishing.  So this is Cindy hanging out on the boat in her Dolce Banana life jacket.

Montybear, the painting

Cathleen commissioned me to do a black and white portrait of Montybear using the photo from the woodblock collage. I can see the reason for the bear reference. He's got a powerful head and from the body I could see in the photo he probably weighs at least 80 pounds. I don't know what it is about this image but it looks like a person sitting for a formal portrait. Maybe I should have added a jacket and tie. He's a little hairier than Cathleen's other kids.
