Patchwork Pound Puppy Puzzle 2 for P.A.W.S.

Patchwork Pound Puppy Puzzle 2 for P.A.W.S.

5″ x 7″ Acrylic on Wooden Puzzle

This is the 2nd of 3 puzzles I painted for the SE Oklahoma Assoc. of Realtors auction, to benefit P.A.W.S..  They just make me want to giggle.  For those of you who wondered, I bought the blank puzzles for $1.99 each from Hobby Lobby.

I also bought a birdhouse and some other assorted things.  I really enjoy giving hand painted gifts.  People must get tired of paintings, so if they like wine, I sometimes paint wine boxes, etc.  Life is never dull when you use your imagination.  🙂

About Katharine Graham

Katharine Graham, the publisher of The Washington Post, is considered one of her era’s most powerful women. She was born in 1917 in New York. After her father bought the newspaper, she joined the staff as a reporter. Her husband inherited the paper from her father, and Graham took it over when he died in 1963. During her tenure, the paper printed the controversial Pentagon Papers and uncovered the Watergate conspiracy. She won a Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for her autobiography, Personal History. She died in 2001.

    You are so creative!!!!!! Wine boxes, no less! Love the pink puppy, but really love the QUOTE today! I have so many paintings that have gone awry and I stash away. A month later I see it and think it a treasure. We do truly have humongous mental blocks at times. Thanks. Great post.

      Thanks, Leslie! Oh the wine boxes turn out great! They make a cool gift. On the quote…. I have had a few mistakes that came back to life after a mental rest. Sometimes I work too hard at what I was trying to create, to appreciate the happy accidents. Check out Nancy Merkle’s blog post from yesterday. She didn’t know she was done, until it accidentally went viral and it was a huge hit! 🙂
