While it’s cold wintery outside I’m all rugged up drawing.
Today marks a year that we have had my coworker here. You can beat that ever long night or early morning I’m out here working George is out here with me. Can’t do it with out him 🐶
Here’s the low down.
This time last year we went down to have a look at a few dogs we had seen online, well that was the plan till I saw this boofhead with his cone of shame resting on the ground (big cone little legs) as he sat at the end of his run, with the biggest brown eyes and help me face. He worked it and I couldn’t leave him there and we took him home the next day.
Since then George has come along leaps and bounds. When we first got him he had some big trust issues and fear of men, which with the lots of patience and understanding from Dad and the rest of men in our family, he started to get over. A year later he is now more than happy to get a good chin scratching and head pat for just about anyone that will stop and give him the time.
As time went on George’s true colours came out. His playful side comes to light; he loves to run and jump around and will bring you his toys and talk you into dropping what you’re doing to go play for 10 minutes no matter the time of day. It didn’t take us long to find out that his little legs are full of power, he is a master of the agility course. He powers up the A frames and leaps over the hurdles with ease. He is a big dog with little legs.
After a long day of playing and living the good life, getting up to no good, he loves to hear the magic words “pajamas” on these cold nights. His tail flicks and he comes running to get dressed for bed. Then will promptly take him self off to bed. This is the best time for puppy cuddles.
It’s been a great year for all of us and George, we have many play dates with fluffy cousins, lots of road trips up to Kalbarri and Geraldton, trips to the beach where George loves to explore the dunes and go for a good swim to cool off and so many good memories made with this new member of our family.
Feels so good to be back at the paper again. I’ve spent a week and a half in bed with a cold so this is a good step to getting back into things.
The new muse. I had some time off drawing off late to work on a new range soon to be launched but this little beauty is tempting me back.
A little bit of a thought back to a few months ago when I painted a landscape of an old farmers favourite morning view of his land and award chickens.
Today’s take your dog to work day. George is taking this very seriously and instead of napping is helping pick colours.
I’m working on some exciting new things for a new range. My co-worker however well he is working hard on his beauty sleep (not that he needs it)
To all the mothers and mother figures out there thank you.
Happy Star wars day

This place has been like my second home the last few months. I have enjoyed working and painted up in Kalbarri so much I’m going back up on the 16th of January. Here is a little look into what I have been up to.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

Just a quick post before I knock off and have a cold one and food. But I just want to show the transformation that has taken place over the last month. You will never know how much work has gone into this place by the new owns and the crew but this shows just a bit of what has happen. More photos to come
