A Westie Dog's Sense (Scents) of Color

A Westie Dog's Nose Knows the right color! Our Sir Salty doggy boy chose the paint chip with the X on it and so did I. When you go out into the sunlight verses indoors the colors change in intensity. It's always good to put them next to something outside in natural light...like our orange clay soil by the barn. The grass is not green yet so the terracotta colors jump out, but when I held them next to the evergreens it was the correct color! How one color can transform a setting is amazing.

Now I have this color on some of my shoes and clothes, too, since I have been painting the outside of the studio. Our dog boy has managed to stay paint-free. That is not to be confused with color-free since he loves to roll about.

I need to hurry and finish painting the exterior so I can finish the landscaping on the other side of the building. What fun!

Those warm colors look good together. Where are you going to have this westie topiary?

Can't wait to see pictures of the painted studio and the westie topiary!

The westie topiary at present is in a pot and does not quite resemble a real westie YET. A little more growth and a little more trimming. I am making a wire form for it.
