Blaze

Blaze impatiently waits for her driver.

Blaze rode with me for years.  She loved to go to work and hated to be left at home.  When I would go into my office in the morning she would find the highest point on the truck and intently watch the backdoor impatiently.  She would wait for me to come out so I could take her to the woods.  If she could have driven the truck herself she would have, and I would have been left behind.

She was a tremendous AKC Hunt Test competitor and loved to work.   I painted this of her when she was actively running events.  She would sit in the yard and stare at me refusing to come in until I would come out and train her.  In this watercolor I was trying to capture her intensity and joy of the hunt.

A happy girl.

We logged a lot of miles together a chased a lot of squirrels.  Well, she chased the squirrels.  She was amazing companion and I miss her dearly.

  1. Her eyes and intensity, were the things that I will always remember! And yes… the crush that Santee had on her, that one fall, was filled with many smiles and laughter! Such a tease! If we could all have good girls like her, this world would be a better place!
