Chatham-Kent Etsy artisan sale

If you're in the Chatham-Kent area of Ontario this month, you can shop local handmade artisans not once, but twice!

The Chatham-Kent Etsy Street Team (search ckteam on etsy) is holding their first trunk sale on Thursday, Nov. 19 at the William Street Cafe. But don't worry if you miss it - we'll be back in town again at the decadent Eve Chocolatier on Nov. 26th.

it's been a few weeks since I posted a dog painting...

so here, not one, but three

Tom's Little Dog 
Tom told his dog called Tim to beg, 
And up at once he sat, 
His two clear amber eyes fixed fast, 
His haunches on his mat.Tom poised a lump of sugar on 
His nose; then, "Trust!" says he; 
Stiff as a guardsman sat his Tim; 
Never a hair stirred he. 

"Paid for!" says Tom; and in a trice 
Up jerked that moist black nose; 
A snap of teeth, a crunch, a munch, 
And down the sugar goes!

Great portraits Christy! Are the little ones Maltese? I wasn't sure but they look like two of my friend's dogs.

Christy DeKoning said...

thanks Manon - but I have absolutely no clue what kind of dogs these are!
