Chocolate Lab on a White Couch – HA! – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

Surely you knew that probably wouldn’t happen.  In the photo from Surob at WetCanvas, he was on a brown couch draped with a white sheet.   Not for me, you see.  I really struggled with “to ink or not to ink” since I was painting on that cheap watercolor paper.  I finally settled on a little ink…  for now.  🙂

About Anna Quindlen

Anna Quindlen was only the third woman to become an Op-Ed writer for the New York Times. She was born in 1952 near Philadelphia. As a columnist, she blended the personal with the political, drawing parallels between the two. She left the Times to write fiction. Her novel, One True Thing, became a film starring Meryl Streep. She is the first writer with books on the fiction, nonfiction, and self-help New York Times bestseller lists. She lives with her husband and children in New York.
