"Adopt Me" © Beatrice Bork

Today is my dog "Buttons" Birthday—or at least it's close enough (Feb. 29th, was the best guess). I adopted him in May 2012. Little did I know when I was rescuing him, that he would do the same for me… 

This is a small watercolor painting (3.25 x 3.5") I just finished of him as a puppy.

Great Quote

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, 
people will forget what you did, 
but people will never forget how you made them feel" 
— Maya Angelou

I find that to be a great quote, and so true with painting—which is why I make every painting I create something personal. (There is another quote that relates, "The more personal, the more universal" by Carl Rogers).

Coming soon...
I'm currently finishing up a piece that I'll be showing soon of Green Honeycreepers …  as well as a few smaller pieces (what I'm referring to as intimate encounters) that I may only be showing on my blog for now. (like "Feathered" , the original painting is currently on display at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ)…
