Daily Painting Commissioned Dog Portrait, "Noah" In Progress

"Noah" 14X14
In Progress

Our Halloween trick for today? Calling the furnace serviceman to come and fix our freezing house! Sure enough, first cold snap we get and our furnace decided to dress up for Halloween, pretending to be "Fritz" ..... as in "on the Fritz!" Well, "Fritz" is only 12 years old, so we didn't expect him to start giving us fits. They don't make 'em like they used to....the old one lasted nearly 30 years. Thank you EPA regulators for dumbing down the furnace industry... and thank you, also, to all of the manufacturers who left the country and now make cheap junk for us to use. Anyway, a big fat grand later, our house is once again toasty warm. We have been forewarned that "Fritz" may last us another two or three years and then... and then... and'll be "Freddie on Elm Street" for Halloween. Oh, boy. I can't wait for that one!

This being the story of the day, painting more of Noah did not happen til late this evening, by which time I was good and tired from trying to stay warm all day. Here's the progress today. Better "spirits" tomorrow now that All Hallows Eve is over. :-)
