Airedale as Center of the Universe - Watercolor Terrier Dog Painting

This painting is SOLD

Welsh Terrier - Airedale as Center of the Universe - Watercolor Terrier Dog Painting
Airedale as Center of the Universe - Watercolor Terrier Dog Painting, painting by Sandra Merwin
About This Painting:
Airedales often think they are the center of the universe. Ask anyone who has an Airedale. This painting celebrates their wonderful energy and ability to hold the universe in their paws.

I read this story years ago and I still remember it.

A little boy asked to pet a woman's dog. When he did he looked into the dog's eyes and then turned to the woman and said: "Did you know you can see the whole world in the eyes of your dog?"

The woman looked and in the brown large eyes she could see reflections of herself and her environment. How profound that you can see your whole world in the eyes of a dog.

Deep Sleep Terrier - Welsh Airedale - SJ Merwin

This painting is SOLD

Deep Sleep Welsh Terrier
Deep Sleep Welsh Terrier, painting by Sandra Merwin

About This Painting:
I spent all day emailing to stop the Horse Slaughter Plant from being built in Montana. I hope you called or emailed there is still time to be heard.

Today my geriatric Welsh asleep at my feet. His peaceful breathing reminding me that he was there for me. Shiloh is an old dog so he sleeps deeply now, more deeply than when he was a puppy. When he wakes he is stiff and a little disjointed about what happening but he is ready and willing to play. In human years he is between 80 and 85. I hope I can be as joyful as he is when I'm 80.

Welsh Love - Welsh Terrier Dog Painting
Welsh Love - Welsh Terrier Dog Painting, painting by Sandra Merwin

About This Painting:
Sometimes a painting just melts my heart. "Welsh Love" tells the story of my 13 year old Welsh Terrier who teaches me daily about how to live a life full of love. For example he is so arthritic that his back legs are stiff, but he insists on talking a walk daily so that he can smell the air and trot stiff legged slowly around the block. He knows that to be alive you must get out and taste the air.
