Treeing a 'Coon

This slate was commissioned by my friend, Laura. The dog is their Blue-tick coonhound, Jessie. It is unfortunate that my camera had difficulty picking up the smaller detail. The slate was sealed to protect it, and the sealant gives a bit of a glossy glare even without the camera flash. There is a raccoon, the object of Jessie's interest, resting in the crook of the tree.


  1. You have a wonderful talent,I hope it takes you far.

  2. This is one of our most precious belongings. Our beloved coonhound Jessie passed away a year ago last month, there's not a day that goes by that we don't miss her terribly. We thank Taunnya so much for this beautiful depiction of her doing what she loved most.

    RIP old girl
