Taste test and a golden smile

I managed to get yet another shell up and ready!

And I must say... I'm very happy with this one. Golden Retrievers have such charming smiles, don't they? I'm the first to say that "a golden is not my sort of dog" - when when you see them smile, you can see why people just can't resist them!

And just for fun, here's some Marco and Perry bliss because its been a while since we last saw them!

We've been having a heatwave, so the beach has been a lifesaver, both for a breeze and coller temperatures and unlimited zoomies :)

Wow your shells are awesome. Very creative. What made you start up with portraits on shells??

Thanks guys :) Carly... I'm not sure how i started. I think i started by just doing some designs on clam shells that i had lying around. Then i tried a couple of dog paintings as gifts for people i work with. It was a big hit and two years later i decided that it would be something fun to sell, too :)

I agree - we had a black lab, and I couldn't help but melt when she looked at me!
