Stone Coffee Puppy

"Stone Coffee Puppy"

9x6 coffee and ink on paper
$25 plus $6 for shipping in the US

This is the puppy my friends just got. They are also the folks responsible for the delicious coffee I drink and paint with. The Stone family own Sorbenots Coffee, it's Stone Bros backwards. Clever eh?

For my birthday last month Andrea gave me a CD of dog pictures their son Hunter had taken, because I had been talking about wanting some new subjects. So this was based on one of those photos. Fun to do a Coffee Hound after a long break from painting with coffee.

Brian, I love your dogs and this one of Hunter's is no exception! What a beautiful sweet Bella Luna you have captured, she is certainly a "coffee puppy"! Thank you for sharing your gift and love of dogs ~Tammi

Brian, Thanks for your attention and detail in capturing Bella Luna 's sweetness. She is almost as sweet as her owner, Hunter. You are a testimony to the fact that good coffee matters for lots of reasons!!!

What a good job, Brian. Hunter is so proud of Bella Luna, thanks for making his day!...Nana

I love your "Coffee Dogs"! Andi told me you need more subjects. We have a 6 1/2 month old Rottweiler and 4 month old Basset Hound- I'll send you some pics. Bella Luna means Beautiful Moon in Italian....way to capture her personality and name sake! Jen (Hunter's Aunt)

Thanks Tammi,

Welcome to the blog. I can't wait to see what Bella Luna looks like now. I know she's grown quiet a bit.

Thanks La Dolce,

I couldn't agree with you more about the importance of good coffee. It's almost as powerful as the love a dog has for it's owner.

Hi Nana,

I heard that Bella Luna was a big hit at show and tell. I'm going to bring the painting to Andi tomorrow so Hunter can take it next time in all it's coffee glory.

Thanks Jen,

I'm glad you like the painting. I'm looking forward to getting sometime next month to do more Coffee Hounds. Maybe the photos you sent me will work well for some of those.

Stay tuned.
