While I was at the Norton Simon Museum, I started noticing all the dogs in the paintings. I took photos of a lot of them. Look at the color on the little pug looking dog above. And below, this big guy was some nobleman's beloved hound. It was a large portrait of just the dog.
This one looks like a bird dog, a Brittaney.
This little guy was in a huge painting that depicted the interior of St. Peter's Basilica. How funny to see this little fu fu dog there.
Some type of hound.
This is actually a cat. Kind of add looking, playing with a bit of string with a bunch of monks in front of a fireplace.
I can't tell if this is a cat or a dog. Could be a Chihuahua type of dog.
This lady is a bad example of the effects of drink. It looks like the dog is laughing at her.
These two little dogs are at the Marriage in Cana.
This little spaniel is happy to see someone.
Another happy spaniel. Looks like the only happy one in the painting.
At first I thought this was a dog, but it's a lion.
One of my good friends just started a blog and I didn't really get it. I have kept a journal for years and was not sure that a more "public" journal was something that held any interest for me. I have found, however, that I have enjoyed reading her posts and commenting on them. I have started reading other blogs and am finally coming "up to speed" and seeing some value in the process of sharing thoughts in a way that is unique from both conversation and journaling but somehow a combination of both. Welcome to my blog!
