Under Dog by Karen Knuff
I’m always looking for a picture to paint, that has that WOW factor. I would like my viewers to be able to stretch their minds, to look at something that is out of the box.
My friend often posts great pictures, and always about her dogs or kittens that she rescues. One was really odd! I asked her how she had gotten the picture. She commented, “Oh just ignore this one, it’s clearly an oopsy picture… I mean a BIG goof up, because I accidentally took a picture while I was sneezing!” So funny!!
The more I looked and studied it, the more I wanted to paint it. It really is offbeat and unusual, but at the same time a wonderful painting!

I discovered that when I’m painting, I no longer feel depressed. I’ve struggled with depression for years. This definitely was the miracle that I desperately needed in my life! When I paint, my depression simply evaporates into thin air for that day.
Where did my creative talent come from? I know that this is God’s gift to me, and what a gift!
I have an art studio in my home in Maple Ridge, BC where I live, and where I paint my pictures.
My father, my aunt, and my grandmother were all artists.
