My friend, Matt Prager, doesn't consider himself a photographer. But I think his photograph of three Labs (note the brown one refereeing) playing in the Rahway River on the South Mountain Reservation in New Jersey is brilliant. And perfect for the first day of summer.

Her new series of dog artworks push her exploration of contrasts and silouhettes, and explore her daily observations, personal relationships, and the passage of time. They are being featured in the upcoming exhibition, The Dog Show: Loving Our 4 Legged Friends, at WaterWorks Gallery on San Juan Island, June 22 - July 13, 2013. There's an opening reception and discussion this Saturday at 2pm. Fellow dog artist, sculptor Barbara Duzan, will also be discussing her work.
