Kenzo & Viva Art Surprise

What do you think? Aren't they beautiful?



You probably noticed these watercolor paintings are based on the photo's I carry on the top banner of the blog. I selected them because they both capture their different characters so well. Viva, with her sweet, loving and also somewhat dependent look. It's her expression when she feels safe and just wants to be close to me. Kenzo, the eternal optimist, having fun in the moment, and already scouting for the next thing to enjoy, full of misschief.

All credit's go to the talented and gifted Margie K. for these beautiful watercolor painted versions of my favorite couple. I am forever grateful to you Margie.

When I look at the paintings, I also think back at Shiloh the Hovawart, as Margie and me met trying to help getting Shiloh adopted. Which after a long two year fight for Shiloh and two hip operations, finally got a happy ending.

I have a lot to smile about, when I look at the wall, where they are shining now.



  1. What I would REALLY like to know - - - - - is how do you keep such a white home looking clean and white with two hovies???!!! I have given up!

    1. Haha! For starters, pointing the camera strategically above Hovie height will do wonders on photo's!

    2. Chuckling and chortling at that!

  2. Very nice. They look good on the wall. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Pawsome and it's beautiful Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. Yes! They are beautiful. Margie did a wonderful job.

  5. Lovely. And I'm glad you explained what of the dogs' personalities you see those pictures. Honey often has a similar expression to Viva's. And I love the way you described it.
