Pictures from my studio
I used to have a dog named Jamoka. He was so named because when he was a puppy and I brought him home there was a bag of brown grout on the floor for a project I was working on and somehow he got named after that shade of grout. He was a special dog, handsome and cute and nice. He never growled at other dogs and he was mellow and never jumped on people. He was the subject of paintings by Francis Kidder and was in an ad for an insurance company and a comic strip by Hilary Price. He died suddenly in November of 2006 and I was heartbroken. Then on February 1, 2007 he appeared in the broken ice and snow in the canal outside my window and I somehow didn’t see it but my upstairs neighbor Nona Hatay felt called to her window and saw this image and captured it for me. Since then I look for him every morning in the canal at dawn and take pictures. So I thought I’d post them here.
