It was raining so, I had to paint inside today. My dog, Zoe, made sure to stay close while I was painting. I guess she didn't trust me with her favorite toy.

This painting is my first attempt at painting outdoors. It was a beautiful morning so I collected all my paint supplies and headed to the backyard. It's amazing how wonderful colors look in real sunlight. I just chose a simple subject, but something I have never painted before...a ball. And not just any ball, this is my dog Zoe's birthday ball. She loves to "Get the ball!"
