You Shut Up!

I finally finished a project I have been working on for a while now - a painting of my dog Marla! The painting itself was done a while ago, but I've been avoiding adding the stenciled letters....

I used Tim Holtz stencils and the only stencil brush I have, which was way too big for the task, but here is the outcome

So, Marla doesn't bark much. But she speaks. If you ignore her, or are talking smack, she will put you in you place. It sounds like she is saying "You shut up!" She is the best.

And here she is telling YOU to shut up! :)


  1. Oh, sweet Marla girl! She did a fine job posing for your lovely portrait! She's a cutie!

    Love your blog :) I have had a great time perusing several of your posts! Nice meeting you!

    Kindly, Lorraine

  2. Thank you! Marla is hilarious. This isn't the picture I used for the painting, but it's very similar. Marla gets bored with photos, so here she is simply tolerating the shot ;) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh this is just too stinkin' cute!! Love it!
