30 dogs in 30 days

Here's an ambitious project: paint a picture every day for 30 days. Think it doesn't sound that hard? Ok, make the subject of each day's picture a dog. Not the same dog. A different dog each day.

I think the toughest part may be finding 30 dogs. How many people know 30 dogs?

Kat Corrigan must know a lot of dogs, so she set out to paint a portrait of a different dog each day for the month of July 2012.

What do you think, was she successful? Were all 30 painted?

July 1st subject:

Dakota, a shepard mix who lives in Becker, MN, with a number of sheep, chickens, and cows, and who delights all she meets with her irrepressible grin!  Here she is featured lying in her pool, a favorite place in the heat.

July 31!

Pepper, the last dog.

She did it! Congratulations, Kat.

Congratulations, also, for the inclusion of Tyler Foote.
