Happy Dog in the Tulip Fields

Happiness is contagious and because nothing says happy better than a wagging tail pup, running between tulips, I present my latest painting:


I wish you all a very happy spring!

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.”

    • Thank you for your lovely words, dear Frances! I still have the picture in my mind of her running towards me, so I just had to place that image somewhere 🙂 Tulip fields sounds pretty good. Many hugs!


    • Thank you so much, Johanna! Yes, the doggy is Lisa, my pup 🙂 I hope it looks close enough.
      I love when she runs towards me, so I’ve decided to place her in the tulip fields.
      Happy Easter to you as well! Have a lovely time with your loved ones! x

  1. It really looks like Lisa in the photo you’ve taken recently 🙂

    Yes, happiness is contagious. Having positive and happy friends always make you feel better. It’s the same with blogging. You are a very positive person and I’m always happy when I read you comments ❤

    I hope you feel better.

    • Thank you so much for your lovely words, Gin! 🙂 They put a smile on my face!
      It was meant to be Lisa, so yaaaay! I was inspired by the picture in which she was running towards me. I love when she does that.
      I feel a bit better. I guess I’m on my way to getting rid of this cold. 🙂
      How’s the salmon hating kitty? haha I hope you adapted well.
      Have a lovely day!


  2. Very lively Lucy, it looks as if it is there in front of you.
    Keep sharing your’s such lovely painting.
    Writing and painting as an art form goes hand in hand, one plays on the other and if we keep doing both, our creativity gets new dimensions and our perspective in how and what we write changes…

      • I love art, it is an excellent form to express our creativity…it hones our imagination and when we see such master pieces it immensely inspires us.
        Writing and painting goes very well, one rubs on the other, a good writing takes us to new painting and a good painting drives us write a good piece.

        The more we paint, the more better it becomes our skill of painting…it requires more patience and dedication than writing…

        Indeed each form of art is such a fascinating way to express ourselves and as we start knowing more about each form, the better becomes our appreciation for creativity…

        Thank you and you too have a lovely day ahead…


      • I can’t agree more. You need much more patience for painting than you do for writing. However, I do find it relaxing, but I can only do it while I’m in a good mindset. Otherwise it isn’t working 🙂
        Your words tell me you have some experience with this. Do you paint, or used to paint? I’d love to see some of your work. A beautiful mind and heart will definitely do impressive things with a piece of paper or a canvas.
        All the best! 🙂

      • I love art, I have been always fascinated by the beauty of art and its multiple manifestations…painting, photography, writing, music and many more. In my family and my friends many do painting that’s how I started knowing more about it, I tried but I am not good at it and I moved to photography which gives me the insights and inputs to augment my writing, every art form rubs on the other. We have to keep our mind meaningfully engaged and keep looking at such beautiful art forms to inspire and excite our imagination, writing just flows…
        As you are very good at painting, it reflects in your thinking and such beautiful writing…
        It is always a pleasure to exchange thoughts with you on such fascinating aspects of art…
        Have a lovely weekend…

      • Thank you for sharing this with me. Being surrounded by artists sure makes us appreciate art so much better. I can’t really choose one. I’m not great at any of them, but I do my best to improve everyday. It’s nice to have a hobby, and be passionate about something. Life would be so boring with it 🙂
        Keep up with photography and painting! It’s always amazing to see your work.
        Have a lovely day! 🙂

      • One thing I have seen with all great artists is that they are all very humble and have beautiful thoughts, and you fall in love with their thoughts, ideas and their humility in conversations with different people.
        You are right we should all have our hobby and passionately pursue that area of interest…life is fascinating by itself but we all make it boring by not doing what interest us and engaging us more meaningful and keep exploring newer ways to challenge our mind and imagination. It cannot be an one-time process nor it can be just static, it is dynamic and needs constant fodder to feed out fertile imagination…exploring the unexplored, venturing to uncharted territories and imagining the unimaginable…
        Lovely discussion with friends like you who are so good at art and don’t admit it drives me do better and keeps me on toe to keep learning new things from different art forms.
        Thanks and you too…

      • Some might agree with you, and some might not. I know people who say artists are weird and eccentric. I believe it’s beautiful to meet the person behind the work of art. I agree with you, it’s beautiful to see their thoughts coming to life.
        Some of us are lucky enough to have the time to work on their hobbies. Others don’t really have this luxury, because of the busy schedule. I feel like when I can’t work on my passions as well, I die a bit inside. I just need them 🙂
        From time to time I meet people who tell me they have no hobbies and no talents. I find that very strange.
        Cheers to a wonderful talk! Have a lovely Sunday 🙂

      • I agree with you Lucy, many artists are weird and eccentric…difficult to understand them and tough to interact with them. But it always fascinating to know about their life and their thinking and working behind such magical creations. Many times they just cannot put their experiences into words and they may not be always be good at communication and describing what they have done. It is a combined outcome of their intuitive power and their inspiration and the fire they have in their imagination.
        You are right some of us have the privilege to have the time to give to our hobby and nurture it leisurely. Passion is the fuel within us and we all live a life within which is many times more important than the life outside.
        The hobby dies if we don’t use it and in fact it needs constant nurturing to grow it…and working on our area of interest and making it work is not an easy proposition as it appears to the outside world.

        Indeed cheers to our such lovely conversations…let it contribute to the beauty of creativity.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m very happy to know you enjoyed my painting 🙂 That’s Lisa’s cutest face, when she’s running towards me, so it was worth putting it into a painting. Have a lovely weekend!


    • Thank you so much! I’m working on becoming better at it. I think it’s working, as with every painting it gets easier and closer to reality 🙂 Have a great day! x


  3. Oh how wonderful to see Lisa even if in a painting. This beautiful image made me smile. You are so talented! If I tried to paint a dog in the tulips I’m afraid it might look more like a hippo in the garbage dump. 🙂

    • Hahaha, now you made me laugh, Sue 🙂 I never painted a hippo before, so I might have some skills to learn from you :))). Thank you so much for your kind words! I love the way she runs towards me, very excited to see me, so it’s great to have it on a painting. I put it on my wall, behind my desk. A nice way to bring some color to my days 🙂 Have a great day! Hugs
