What's on (in) your wall(et) - or - if your walls could talk what would they say about you?


Hanging on the wall of the landing on my second floor. Before I die I will have another 'merry spaniel' in my life.


Above my bed. Long before Scout came into my life I was in love with the Golden.


In my master bath. My first love - the Cocker Spaniel.


My home office. I love art with animals and children.


My home office. A gift from a friend.


Found in the attic of the first home I bought in 1980.

Good point and I like your art choices. What's on your walls reflects who you are.

My mom's furst 'when I grow up I want to get' was a Cocker Spaniel too!

She would be buff kholoured and her name would be Chamois -

Mom says they had cockers when she was little. There is very little hanging on the walls in our home because Mom and Dad never agree on decor:( So she says no point in making holes in the walls.

Nice art work at your place.

I love your art! I love Cockers so I have some hanging on my walls. The other pictures are different kinds of dogs, cats, country scenes with horses and one mountain scene with elk at a lake. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

LOL
My walls would say 'When are you going to paint me from where Jack is rubbing up against me and making me all dirty?'
And the answer will be - When I get around to it! :)

Interesting question. Our walls would say -- Would you give us some breathing space already?

We have dogs all over -- mostly wires, including the amazing painting Ami made for us (see the sidebar on our blog). But we also have a New York wall and a Mexican art wall and a Haida wall and a cardinals wall (the birds, this time, not our team) and lots of other things. We like so many different things that there's not enough space for it all. Which is why the walls gasp for relief when they see us coming home after a visit to an art show or a trip!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

I luvs all your works of art! We dogs sure do make good models, don't we? Our walls are BORING. Mainly cuz we don't have too much dog art. We have one picture of the RCA dog and that's IT! But we have severals of cats. What is that about anyway? Now that you got me thinking about it, I think I'd better talk to mom about this unsavory development.

We have quite a bit of dog art here, too! I'm going to have to take some pictures!

Sam said...

I have a feel that why I get my own house, my walls will look a lot like yours!

Lola said...

You know, I never thought about it before, but Alpha Mom's walls have more horsies than dogs on them. There is a nice wolf in the bedroom, though. Now Blog Mom's wall are...let's say they're eclectic. You have excellent art on yours.

Those were the same painting I looked at when I dreamt of owning my first Golden, as a little girl. I still have many of them, and I still dream of dogs to come.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

All your Art work tells a story about your heart.
My moms have photographs all over the walls in frames. Photos of all the past animals. Photos of all those animals that still live in their heart.
Millions of photos, millions of frames.

My 2 children used to say there were more framed pics of my dogs, past and present than there was of them on the walls...;)
Glad you checked out the K-9 Veteran's day site!
