I had to say goodbye to my boy Flynn on Tuesday. This is the last picture I took of him. He was the first dog that was just mine. He was my mothers day gift fourteen years ago. We spent so many great moments together. walked together, herded sheep together, traveled to many states, camped together, and so much more. He was my companion and my friend and he has left a huge hole in my life. I like to think he is off chasing sheep in a huge pasture in the sky. So long Flynn you were the best dog ever.
The house has been so quiet, I have had a hard time getting used to it all. After a session with my coach where she suggested a memorial rock or something for my garden to remember Flynn. It being winter I thought of something else, an altar. So I collected all my border collies and added Flynn's picture and a little sheep for him to chase. It will do for now.
Then I turned to art which I have missed. It felt great to be working on my journal again. I loved how this background turned out. I didn't quite know what I wanted to add to the page. It has been awhile since I painted a face so it felt great to be painting again.
I played with this page some more. I am not sure what will come next but its fun to play with.
