I was reading Diane Clancy' s ArtBlog yesterday and was quite saddened to hear that she doesn't get many commissions about pictures of old people. I love her dreamlike pictures of people's dogs in carpets of magical flowers, so may well save up the pennies (and learn to work out the e-mail) to get a commission of our old dog Tessa, who is sixteen in April.
I have been taking lots of pictures of Tessa recently and here is a picture of her (courtesy of Dumpr.net) which they have put up in the British Museum.
My previous posting was to do with how a sprinkling of white makes things look better, and she has a touch of the white stuff herself about the muzzle, bless her. A marking of her venerable old age.
