Welcome to my DOG BLOG.


When disaster strikes and you lose ALL your blog posts in a website move, the thing is to draw breath, take a break & go again..

So this is me, Samantha Barnes aka ipaintdogs starting again - only this time my dog blog is going to be better, much much better.

This is what I’m taking from my loss, gusto to go again only making my blog better than it was before.

I want to bring you interviews and tips from some of my lovely doggy-business mates, offers and treats from those I work with, news from my studio and of course, dog paintings on the easel as they happen.

So onwards dear hearts.

I LOVE to hear from you and have a designated mailing list for ipaintdogs which I heartily invite you to join for uber discounts on paintings during specific months, exhibition news and first dibs on doggy-related products I put my name to.

For now though, many thanks for reading my post and it’s lovely to meet you!
