Hazel - December 9, 2009

“Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.”
Thomas A. Edison

Hazel is my sister’s dog. I don’t know much about painting realistic animals, so this is a new experience for me. (Where’s all the purple? *grin*) Hopefully my sister will like it.

About Thomas A. Edison

Thomas Edison, the American inventor who made his early fortune with the stock ticker and the phonograph record, is credited with inventing the light bulb — although he simply improved upon the original idea by making the bulb burn longer. Edison was born in 1847 in Ohio. He was a dreamer in school; his teacher called him “addled,” and his mother taught him at home. He used the money from his inventions to set up a lab with a number of employees; he held a record 1,093 patents in his name. He died in 1931.
