5th & 6th Paintings of ME

Here are the fifth and sixth paintings of me done by Barbara Keigher.

Snowball Airedale

It is being listed on eBay, and 15% of the auction goes to Airedale Terrier Rescue and Adoption (ATRA).

e-Bay link to Snowball Airedale

Now, the REAL exciting news!!!! Mum is finally going to own her first ever painting of me without having to bid. Since mum's eBaying record has been terrible and extremely frustrating with the last 4 paintings, Barbara decided to paint one just for mum so she won't have to bid on eBay!!

This is mum's painting!!!!!

Sunshade Catching Snowball

Since Barbara does original paintings, she had to make the second painting a little different, so she added in the snowman and the mountains in the eBay painting. Mum can't decided which one she likes better, she is just happy she is finally gonna be able to get a painting of me!!!

Both paintings were created from this picture:

Sunshade, we love all the paintings!! Wow, now your Mommy has her very own painting of you? Do you know where she's gonna hang it?? Maybe over the mantle?


Sunshade said...

Tobes: Mum is SUPER excited about her first ever painting of me!! She's not sure where she's gonna hang it yet. My mantel is kinda full right now as you might remember LOL.

Texas: OH my gosh Texas, you paint?? You are so talented!! I dont' think I can paint with paint, but I think I can paint with mud as I love to dig and paint all over my floor with muddy paws!!


Love nibbles to you both,
Miss Sunshade

How exciting is that. Your very own painting of you. Though it is a compliment to how gorgeous you are that she is being outbid don't you agree. As for which one I like I like them both.....sorry I am no help lol

Just 2 more sleeps till Santa Paws comes

Merry Christmas

Hi Sunshade

I love your paintings. You are going to be famous.

Thank you heaps for visiting my blog. You and your mum are very special.

It is great to be friends with you. I'm partial to the ladies because I'm a bloke, and I think you're really cool.

Have a very happy Christmas and I'll be talking to you again before the New Year.

Also, I'll link to you if my mum hasn't already done this. She tries hard, but she's a bit slow.

I love you
from Hammer

Great Photo & great painting. Mom wants a painting of us too, but she's broke from buying bullysticks!

Good for us, bad for Mom!

Hope your painting makes lots & lots of $$$ for rescue!

To our ever so famous Miss Sunshade.
We just popped in to say hi from everyone at

We wish you all the best and Happy Holidays.

Love the paintings! They are boss!

I'm so impressed that I know you! I don't know anyone else with pictures that have sold, let alone on EBay.

Why can't you do art? you did the paw print on the Christmas card. Why can't your mom let you use finger paints. I think they are washable (that's what my mom said). Maybe you could do art work and have your mom sell it on Ebay.

We aren't going to get to keep the snow- at least here in the city. The front yard is all bare now.

What fab paintings! You really are a special doggy....but then your mum knows that already I think!
