Time Out

Somedays it is just hard to be a Hubble-your morning starts out with a rousing round of barks over breakfast. From there, you go outside to torment the dogs next door and a few squirrels for good measure. Then it’s back inside where you bark at the birds in the fig tree, jump on a clean bed with dirty paws, chase your sister, tell your mother how you feel about her putting your current favorite toy on the shelf and then bark at your brother. Oh, and tipping the water bowl over.

What follows next is badly needed “time-out” for everyone in the house.

I did not hear a peep from him for most of the afternoon-

And we will be taking a break from the blog through November and part of December. I am at a crossroads with it and need some time to figure out where we go from here-if there is something you would like to see in the blog posts, let us know. It may help in determining our direction.

  1. What a wonderful shot of a mischievous dog at rest! As for me, I’d love to see some posts about your process….how you go from the concept through the execution with software, layers, etc. Hope this helps give you some creative ideas!

    • Thank you Patti-those posts about the workflow are definitely proving to be the most popular along with the noncollage work-so the fellers and I have some things to think about to be sure-Thank you so much for taking the time to look and comment! We appreciate it!


  2. I love how the dark underside of Hubble’s paw draws the viewer into the composition and the diagonal line of the blanket leads you to the subject- dark to mid tone to lightest value- brilliant! Enjoy your hiatus, we’ll be waiting for your return.

  3. I always love your dog photos & hearing about their antics. It would be interesting to see how you figure out your compositions with your tech. tools. How about more of a glimpse of the person behind the pictures?

    Enjoy your break!

    • Thank you so much Alanna! I know I always enjoy reading about how a photograph or painting comes about and the steps that were taken to get there-so that is definitely something I am thinking about doing more of-as for the person behind-Jack Henry and Hubble might weigh in on that-they do not like sharing the spotlight 😉 Thanks so much for your support and interest-we certainly appreciate it!


Arf! Arf!
