  2. LOVELY two pieces Susi but I just adore the dog.xx[aNNie]🎄⛄

  3. Liebe Susi
    von so einem süßen Hund würde ich
    auch gerne meine Weihnachtspost überreicht
    bekommen - mega - genau wie dein strahlender Stern.
    Ich wünsche dir einen gemütlichen Nachmittag.

  4. The darling dog with the parcel in his/her mouth is priceless. The Santa hat was the icing on the cake. It's a fabulous painting, and so worthy of Art Journal Journey.

    I was also so impressed with the Hanukkah painting, too. I like the design. Thanks for sharing these fabulous paintings at Art Journal Journey.

  5. WOW! Susi, these are fantastic, but the dog stole the show for me too.
    What an adorable face you put on it.

  6. Liebe Susi
    wie wunderschön dein Stern und der Weihnachtshund .. herrlich wie du es gemalt hast!
    Schönen 3. Advent wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  7. zum knutschen ist dein weihnachtshund - und die Hanukkah seite gefällt mir super gut! hab das Video gleich nachgeschaut, danke für die Anleitung:)
    hab eine schöne dritte adventwoche ♥♥♥

  8. Aaaawww - little doggie has a present for us! It's a super painting and you've given him the sweetest face.
    I love the Hannukah star and candles too, the candles are flickering.

  9. Superklasse.Der Hund ist großartig.
    weihnachtlche Grüße

  10. Susi these are both beautiful. Your Hannukah page has a wonderful glow to it and the pup really looks quite festive. I don't think I could get either of my dogs to sit long enough to wear a hat.They would look awfully cute though it I could. Great sketch. Hope you are having a good weekend. We have the flu here in my house and everyone is in recovery mode. Hugs-Erika

  11. Susi, I am in love with your painting of the dog. Absolutely adorable.
    Your Hannukah painting looks fantastic as well.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  13. wow beautiful work,well done my friend xx

  14. Two beautiful and two very different pages! Loving the Hannakah page with that gorgeous splattered star!

  15. I do so love the movement you create with your watercolours Susi, both striking but I have to agree with Alison it's that adorable little doggy that steals my heart too!! Superb paintings.
    Warm Hugs Tracey xx

  18. Oh oh my two absolute stunners Susi, I especially love the adorable dog

  19. Such beautiful paintings! I love the little doggie, we've just be visiting family and I'm reminded of Sophie, the little dog we stayed with - she is so cute but I don't think she would wear a Santa hat and would definitely prefer a ball shaped parcel ... Lol 😉. The splatters on the star make it looks so sparkly too - perfect! I hope you are having a lovely weekend 😁. We've just got back after visiting family, we had a great time and with lots of travelling involved, so it's nice to be home 😉. Happy Sunday! J 😊 x

  20. It's always a pleasure for me to admire your beautiful painting Susi. The dog reminds me of my Asterix- the dog I used to have. He loved wearing fancy dresses!
    Early Merry Christmas to you my Dear Friend (as I'm leaving for Christmas)

  21. Wow, zwei sehr schöne handgemalte Seiten, Susi.

    Hab noch einen schönen Restsonntag

  22. These are just awesome! the dog is just so special too made me smile, and my husband is Jewish so I made him a Hanukkah dinner with all the fixins last week

  23. Hello Susi hope you are having a lovely weekend. Thank you for the lovely comments you left on my blog - its lovely to be back in blogland I have really missed it and seeing your work :)

    Your doggie is super adorable and has so much character in his face and the second piece, funnily enough I had already been watching 'Wonder Forest' on YT last week so it was lovely to see your version of that piece. I'm still watching YT every morning before getting up when Dave brings tea and a biscuit :)
    Have a great new week .............Gill xx

  24. Wow Susi, that dog painting is absolutely AMAZING!! I so adore your loose style, I wished I could do that! Your Chanukka piece is wonerful too!!

  25. What beautiful paintings Susi - they are both lovely in their own way. You are such a great artist.

  26. Oh my, ist der Kleine süüüß!! Das Video mit dem Stern sah ich mir an, weil ich wissen wollte, wie man die geraden Linien erhält - sehr interessant, ganz einfach! Bei dir gefallen mir die Farben besser, weil sie kräftiger sind! Insgesamt eine wunderschöne Doppelseite!
    Sei lieb gegrüßt! Rike

  27. Susi, I am the newest member of your "fan club" and join in the enthusiasm for your lovely paintings! Love your style. And thank you for the links to the tutorials. I look forward to watching both videos.
    Happy Monday to you.
    Kind regards, Chris

  28. Susi! That dog is so very darling! I love your watercolors- have I ever told you that? LOL
    Your menorah is just as beautiful and is perfect for the twinkle theme!
    I truly love your paintings, they are so free and full of life!
    Hugs,Jackie xx

  29. Was für eine schöne Hannukah!!!
    Und der Hund sieht aus, als ob er gleich blinselt. Wie kann man nur so schön zeichnen?!
    LG Conny

  30. Oh that dog is wonderful - I'm sure you were channelling your own when you did that. And I love the Hanukkah piece as well - the splatters are great!

  31. Die sind beide sehr schön aber den Hund finde ich ja ganz besonders toll, liebe Susi! Der würde sich gut als entzückende Weihnachtskarte machen.
    Viele liebe Grüße

  32. Love it!! Full of joy!!

    Peace Giggles
