Drawing a Day Challenge: Day #16

Happy National Puppy Day!!!!

It’s kind of funny; I couldn’t remember what today’s drawing was going to be, so to mentally prepare I looked at my schedule last night. And what do you know, it was my dog! What better way to celebrate Puppy Day than by drawing the sweetest pupper ever?

Title: Mason

Medium: Graphite pencil on acid free paper

Size: 5×7

Meet Mason! He’s an Australian Shepherd mix, and seriously so sweet. We’ve had him for five years, and he’s about eight or so years old. There’s not much paperwork on him, and what we do have, his birth year is inconsistent. We adopted him from a local shelter; they somehow knew we’d be a great fit and instead of us going to go check him out and then having them come to do a home visit to make sure the house was suitable for him, they brought him to us and got it all done in an afternoon! He was a relatively new dog to the shelter at that point, and had just been sent to them from another shelter in ALABAMA. Mase was found roaming the streets with another dog, but was fully trained and in great health. The first time he’d ever seen snow was with us, and he was so scared of it! I think this winter was the first time he ever played in it! He’s depressed that it’s melting; he’s going to miss it!

My office space isn’t much, but it suits my needs for now. And, since it is clean (or was clean when I took the pictures…), I thought I’d take you all on a little tour!

Welcome to my office!

It’s about a third of our finished basement space; the other part is the kid’s playroom area. Excuse the curtain panel hanging down in the middle of the view; it’s there for when the kids have friends over, we close up the curtains and it helps detract them from going over into my space.
