Dog Painting - "Fort Funston"

Here's a #ThrowbackThursday piece from 2015 that makes me smile every time I see it. Paintings aren't just images, they are often a record of personal experiences. This one recalls one of my favorite places in San Francisco.

Every weekend, Kimberly and I would go to Fort Funston with our two Keeshound mixes, Barney and Betty, where they could run along the beach and sand dunes, get lost in the trees, and even wander through abandoned WWII bunkers. They absolutely loved it, and so did all of the other dogs they met along the way. Around every corner and over every hill, there seemed to be a canine meet and greet. The joy on all of their faces is one of my favorite memories.
