It’s a dog’s life

Painting of small dog

Just a footnote to my last post really about painting scenes at markets.

Painting of Small Dog for sale
What Now? SOLD

One of the small dogs spotted at Stroud a fortnight (2 weeks) ago. This tiny girl was waiting for her people to stop talking so she could carry on leading the way forward.

Apologies for the short post but I am having trouble typing for any length of time due to pain in my hands. A vigorous Yoga session a couple of months ago either sprained my wrists or set off something like arthritis, I am not sure. Anyway, I have had some sort of intermittent pain in my hands (the right one especially) for weeks now, but it’s particularly bad when I type or text!

  1. wonderful painting, so much expression in her face as she waits

  2. I can sense the dog pulling its owner by the leash!

    1. Thank you, Hein. She was patient and impatient at the same time.

  3. Don’t bother replying, but sending good wishes to your wrists.

    1. Thank you, I am doing exercises that seem to help but its the keyboard action that hurts (its the thumb).

  4. Oh, hell, I accidentally found some keyboard shortcut that sent my comment mid-correction. All I was trying to say is that I send my good wishes to your wrists.

    1. I am forever sending messages way before I am ready.

  5. I love this. I think that our canine friends get so fed up with us humans when we stand around nattering on. This little dog’s expression makes it clear what she is thinking!

    1. You are so right!

  6. I always have to shake my head when somebody says something like “vigorous yoga” or “extreme yoga” or the like. Talk about an oxymoron…anyway, yoga or not, hope you get your hands and/or wrists sorted out soon!

    1. I quite agree. I have never had any problems with yoga before. I’ll have to find another class when I am fully recovered. My husband has banned me from going back to that class.

  7. that must be alarming to have pains in your wrists Emma. How are they now and have you gone to the Doctor about it?

    1. Yes, it is alarming. I am doing hand and wrist exercises and its slowly improving, I think. It’s quite hard to get a doctors appointment these days so I don’t feel like ringing up and saying my hand hurts.

      1. well I hope you are able to get through this bout Emma! Not being able to paint would be like a concert pianist not being able to play.

  8. I am still painting, just not typing at length!!! Thanks for your concern, the thought of not painting does fill me with dread, I must say!
