For a year I set my small dot paintings aside. I did some preparatory work for some future ones, but mostly I spent time away from them. Well, now I’m ready to resume this group of paintings I call “e” Series Action. The last one I posted was ef.

Over four years ago my sister’s silver poodle, Frannie, had a litter of puppies. One was a black male. The other two were females, one black and one apricot. I chronicled the development of the puppies with videos I uploaded to YouTube. In fact one video became very popular. It remains popular still.

On a sad note, Frannie passed away in June of 2011. She consumed a parasite that poked holes in her lungs. She had trouble breathing on her own. The four squares of my painting depict Frannie and her three pups. Frannie is gray. Ginger Rose is burnt orange. Sweet Pea and Dugy are the both black.


  1. Aw, Mo, this is very touching. I really like that you made this to remember the poodles by. I like watching the poodles too. They are very sweet. We own a black toy poodle here, so I know how much fun they are and how special they can be.

    1. Daisy:

      Thank you.

      Ginger Rose had her own litter in February 2011. So her pups turned one years old recently.

      They are sweet dogs. They definitely have strong personalities, too.
