Pet Portrait

Spring has not quite settled in this year.  We have fresh snow on the ground.  And I am sooo antsy to start planting things and making the yard pretty for our short warm season.  Here is one project I could start while waiting for the sun and warm weather.
We have a large yard and in the far back is a large mound near the marais.  When the yard was flooded this spring, our dog Ginger always was on the mound sniffing around.  For awhile, this mound was a small island.  We decided it would be fun to name and decorate this area which is now known as “Ginger Island”.

This is Ginger.

This is my rendition of Ginger.

And this is her sign.  Next time I do a sign I will work on the lettering a bit more.  I love the weathered board I found in the junk pile behind an out building. Wish there were lots more with that perfect weathering.

I will have to post a picture of the sign installed when the sun comes out and the snow has melted away again.

  1. pretty wonderful!! Great job. I have 2 dogs. Maybe I could put one on each end...

  2. I'm a new follower from craftomaniac. This is so sweet. I wish I had any painting skills whatsoever so I could make one with out dog on it. I hope you'll stop by sometime.
