evewyone is doing theiw bit

Hi Evewyone..it's Myrna hewe

as you know, it's been a wough time at ouw house lately,so we all had to help out...

I'll tell you what I've been doing, in a minute, but fiwst I wanted to show you what the mailman bwought us fwom Gussie and Muzzew and family....a Money Twee......I'm not kidding that's what it's called......isn't it pwetty??? Thank you so vewy much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I called Asta ovew to help me find the money, but neithew one of us saw any..
ummmmmm, Gussie ,
I think you got jipped..you should complain..it's bootiful and all, but not a single gweenback on it.
but I just know it will bwing us good luck..
Mommi just came back fwom delivewing the two paintings hewe...they wewe commissioned by a designew fow a lobby of a building...and guess what..they paid hew wight away...so maybe that's how the money twee wowks?

these paintings awe vewy abstwact, mixed media stuff about twees

and now fow what I've been doing...well, not much fun stuff..I've been wowking...
since Daddi was being cawed fow by Asta and hew nuwsie pals, I came to help Mommi get hew paintings done.

we did one of a boston cutie

I had to inspect the wowk vewy cawefully..it's an impowtant job

the next thwee awe collage/paintings all inspiwed by the twip to Wome

I help by teawing up papews to use in the collage

my favowites awe the gold ones,and of couwse Asta picked out the owange

now we only have to do 27 mowe paintings by Septembew..and not little ones like these last fouw..it's going to be a long hot summew

but I must confess I pwefew the paintings that have doggies in them

I hope to have mowe exciting things to tell you next time..it's just not been big on play awound hewe lately..but things awe definitely on the mend..Daddi is so much bettew, that we sent the nuwsies home,so now I just hope evewyone stays healthy so we can begin a fun summew.
love and wheeley smooches

Good to hear that your daddi is doing better. You're a pawsome artist too Myrna. I like paintings with doggies in them too. But the other paintings are so pawsome. woh

Let us know if that money tree grows anything that can be spent on treats.
The paintings are lovely. I hope Mommi doesn't wear herself out painting this summer.
So good that Daddi is getting better. Grammie says, "Moco, if we lived closer we could take Daddi some homemade chili. That stuff will burn out what ever sickness that has invaded his body."
That Boston looks like Petra Pie from Normal, IL.

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow Myrna
We love all the painting your mum has done especially the one with the tree..yepper we like that one.
Your mum is so talented.
Guess what, a very close friend of our here in the mountains is an artist and she painted a picture of Bryan walking us drinking coffee and wearing his long shorts. Everyone in Leura knows Bryan and us so it's a very appropriate painting. We'll post about it when we get it.

Hugs and tail wags

CRIZ LAI said...

Wow... I love all the paintings. Can I have one for my house?? Hehe. Anyway, that's a great concept to tear bits and pieces of colored papers and gum them as part of the art. Beautiful!

I have seen some young artists over here using neat stuff such as twigs, wires and crushed egg shells for their painting. Maybe you would love to try out this method with your Mommy :)


Molly the Airedale said...

We're so glad your daddi is doing better, Myrna!
You and your mommi are just the BEST artists! We love to see what you've been working on!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi, Myrna -

We are glad you were helping your Mommi out with the paintings. You do a great job! Especially the tearing the paper part - Kaci and I (Hershey) love tearing paper.

Your Mommi is so talented - and it sounds like she will be really busy the next few months.

What a pretty Money Tree! You and Asta look adorable admiring it.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Stanley said...

Sweet Myrna Girl!

You are a LOVE to help your mommi out so much with the paintings. Did she give you some of the commission?

I have to ask, who is that little Boston your mommi painted? Was it a commission or just for fun? Has she ever painted YOU?

Goober love,

Mack said...

Oh Myrna,
Your Mom is so very talented!

The painting reminds me of my Ruby - so of course it's my favorite!!!

Princess Patches said...

Myrna, you are doing such a good job of helping your mommi with the paintings. They are bootiful! Our mom can only paint walls and stuff like that...no artistic paintings. She can't even draw a stick figure! We are very glad your daddi is getting better!

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Myrna...
My oh my Mommi has been busy painting! All of them are very nice, but I'm with you, I prefer the doggie pictures! That Boston is cutie, cute, cute! Oh and Mom like the very first tree one a lot...something about those are 'her colors'...she's so weird!

So glad Daddi is feeling better!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Dexter said...

I much prefer art with doggies as well, but I guess the peoples have different tastes. Sounds like the money tree is working.

Do you guys live like in outer space or something? The view out your window sure looked high up.


Agatha and Archie said...

Well shredding poaper is a very hard task( and we know that from experience) so good luck Tell Mum the paintings are lovely. Good thing your Daddi was feeling better becasue now I am nursing the PLSB(poor litle sick boy He seems to have gotten a hot spot and become all itchy from our last Arboretum trip(it may have bben the GENORMOUS amount of roaching we did) He is itchy and has a hot spot.......and believe me it is not as easy nursing him as it was your Daddy....Love and kisses A+A

Gus said...

Myrna sweeti: You look so sweet and artsie in your scarf. We are glad to see that you can step in and help Mommi with the paintings while Asta is helping nurse Daddi. We like the tree pictures too, but oh, the ones of Rome are lovely. Glad everything is settling down at your end of the world. Hope the Money Tree works again and again.


Lenny said...

Hey Asta and Myrna - your Mommi sure is talented! What beautiful paintings!

Hey, thanks for putting the Paw-Limpics logo on your site! Charlie sent me a special "button" if you want to use that - I can send you the code if you want.

Your friend, Lenny

Toffee said...

Myrna -

You and your mommi are such a terrierific team! It must be challenging dealing with creating a finished product from a client's vision - I bet you are very good at helping with the communication of ideas!

I hope that you take time to have some fun during the summertime!

My mom liked the first abstract tree painting - it reminded her of birch trees oh and the painting with the "Duomo" (dome?) I personally liked the cutie Boston!

I am glad that daddi is feeling better. = )

Lady Kaos said...

All those paintings are beautiful! Mom is sad that she hasn't been able to do much of her own painting since. While we're selling hte house she doesn't want to get everything out and then have to put everything away all the time. She can't wiat until we get our new house where she can get stuff out and leave it out again.

Deetz said...

Those are wonderful paintings....Very Very professional and original...Does your mum have her own gallery? She should....she is very talented.
I am so glad everyone is on the mend there. The tree is very unique and will probably bring lots of health and luck....
Summer is always busy for the humans, cuz they get more sunlight, which means...more chores.

Unknown said...

Dear Myrna, Asta and Mommi,

I have been busy shredding paper all morning while Mommy was at the gym so I have a nice fresh supply for you! It's all white paper, the better for imprinting with pawprints, right?

Mommy sent the link to your Mommi's paintings to all her friends that were at her party and they all think her paintings are amazing. I'm so lucky I got to be her muse!

Maybe I'll see you at the run later if Mommy ever settles down and does some WORK!

Your pal,


Daisy said...

Thanks for the report, Myrna. You are very artistic! And those paintings are fabulous.

Ashley said...

I absolutely love your mommy's paintings! I wish I could get one for my new office!

Abby said...

Hi, Myrna & Asta...

Wow...A money tree...My Mom wants one, too...

I'm sooo glad that your Daddi is feeling better...

The paintings are really nice...

Abby xxxooo

Petra said...

Boy, your mom is sure going to be busy this summer. She is a fabulous artist! My favorite picture, of course, is the boston. Cute, cute, cute, cute!

I hope your daddi is feeling better each day.

Mr. Hendrix said...

Veronica said...

It's been a long time! Just stopping by to say hello and love the paintings! We do have some sad news, Finny's cancer came back. We will be writing again on his blog. I hope you and all the other dog bloggers are well! We've missed you all!

Finny & Andrea

Renna the Princess Puppy said...

Those are such beautiful paintings!! I like the one with the dog too! My mommy paints too, but I've never seen her because they are all packed away while we try to sell our house. She has some commission stuff she have have to pull back out though if it takes much longer!!

Slobbery kisses!

Clover said...

Hi everyone!
Hope daddi is still recovering well.
Those are some beautiful paintings by your mommi! WOW! We are very impressed. :)
Love Clover xo

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta and Myrna, love the paintings! Are you responsible for "watering" the money tree, Myrna? Hehehe! J x

Joe Stains said...

I am just reading blogs and saw that your poor Dad was sick. I am so happy to see he is better now. What a relief. I love the Boston Terrier painting, it is truly GREAT! We will add Petey's blog to our subscriptions!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Myrna!
Glad your Dad is better and better.
You sure are an artist like your Mom! I like all those paintings!
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Asta...that's not a money tree....

It's MARE I WANNA!!!!!


Uproarious terrier laughter, farts, belches, um and any other disgustingly bodily function possible....

Scruffy and Babystan

the many Bs said...

hi Myrna, we like your money tree, but maybe it has to grow before it makes money on it. or maybe Scruffy and Babystan are right - it's a mari-wanna tree. next time your mommi isn't paying attention, take her cigarette lighter and test it out. hee hee.

we really like your mommi's two tree paintings. maybe those are money trees too. we like the doggy paintings too. when is your mommi going to paint a poodle? hee hee!


Rudy said...

Wow you are such a good artist! The most I can do is track mud in the house, but it's with STYLE... Heh heh!

Glad your Daddi's getting better, it sounded pretty scary to me at first!

Hey I've been busted again -- Mom saw the pic of me at that skating party and I'm in troub-le...! I told her I was going out with my maiden aunt to a movie! Yike... when will I learn??
(had a good time though!)


Sassy Kat said...

So good to find out what Myrna has been up to. That is so nice tht she has the same artistic talents as her mom. I think your pictures are most beautiful and I really liked the one that you started doing because it remended you of your trip to Rome. What a beautiful place to be, Rome.
Glad to hear that the dad of the house is feeling better. That is good news indeed.

Koobuss said...

What beautiful paintings!! I really like the first one a lot! I guess that's how a money tree works, kousin Asta! Right, Gus?

We are glad that everything is going better for you guys!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Amber-Mae said...

Your mom really does a great job in painting! That Boston painting is really cute. Money tree? Then money should fall down from it. I think you'll just have to wait. Heehee!

Butt shakes,
Solid Gold Dancer

Patience-please said...

We sure are glad your daddy is better!!! That's the BEST news!
And the servant went all ga-ga over your mommi's new paintings! Fantastic!

George the Pup said...

Great job Myrna! Looks like you are doing a great job helping your Mom while Asta nurses your Daddi back to health!

Toffee said...

Hi Asta!

How's your daddi doing? Will he be able to go out and spend his winnings from his poker game with his doggie nursies soon?


Murphey said...

Oh Asta,

We have been busy and gone and the lady has been helping freinds whose son is in the hospital with leuekemia and we missed so much that has happened. We are sorry about you Aunt Karen, and your Daddi in the hospital, we are glad he is home and are rooting for his quick recovery.

Lots of terrier love,

Murphey and Reilly

Eric said...

Myrna, wow, thanks for showing us Mommi's paintings and the collages. They are fabulous,how talented your Mommi is.

You could do some abstracts by putting paint on your wheels and rolling around? Would be wheelie amazing.

Good day Myrna. Wally Wednesday (on Thursday)

wally said...

oooooh! I like the art! There's an awful lot of talent in that house!


Islay said...

Hi Asta, you're very lucky to have a wheelie - I should get one, too because you can do all kinds of things with them when the humans are out!

licks & slobbers

Toffee said...

Hi again,
Thanks for visiting me today; I know how busy you are. Psst! Here's a secret for you Myrna and for you Asta - my mom is planning on getting a painting done of my dad2b's dog (now over the bridge) and us for my dad2b's 40th b-day in November 2009. Don't worry she will give PLENTY of lead time because she knows that Myrna & Mommi are busy gals. After she read Petey's blog today she kinda liked the idea of a collage...so much choice! Please do not comment back regarding this secret because dad2b reads my comments and we want it to be a surprise!

Myeo said...

Hi Myrna

The paintings are all so beautiful. You did a great job in helping your mommmy.
