Dog Days by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art




 Mrs Wise-One  tells us, no one is never too old to learn, especially about something they have heard about for years, (as in MANY YEARS) but never quite "got it".

I was wondering what,"The Dog Days of Summer" really means, and how that idiom came about. So, I've googled it to see.


This is what I found:

The sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11. 2. a period marked by lethargy, inactivity, or indolence. Origin of dog days. Latin.
I found that interesting. But, honestly, I'd rather be looking at some cute dogs, than dealing with high-heat, so take a look at one of my "dog days"... as in applying layers of oils on canvas, creating a commissioned painting of two adorable Yorkie's. One is very old, and in his prime, and the other is still a young, high energy ball of fun in a fur coat.








This is a commissioned painting, but I love taking custom orders. Please contact me through this blog, or from my Etsy Shop. Thanks for reading my blog, and looking at my work.
