PUG MUG 1
























24x24" oil on canvas $950

  


Still rockin' the Making A Mark award buzz. Feels nice. I can see it now. By the end of the year I'll be entering every possible competition known to man and turn into a fierce competitor with skin as thick as cowhide. Not!

Anyway, meet Pug Mug 1!  I recently installed a collection of snaps into the computer screen saver folder, most of them of the boys. Since the tv is hooked up to the computer screen, when it goes to sleep we're treated with fade in and out images of the boys. As Blu's face filled the screen a few weeks back I was instantly inspired to fill a canvas the same way. It was great fun to paint and I look forward to doing more of my little super models.

Raz is next, channeling Norma Desmond. And I'm planning on more quick smaller works but we'll see what happens.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  8. WOW! Great pug mug! - Blu's tongue seems to be sticking out, ready to lick your face if you get too close to the canvas.
    I'm doing a series of mugs as well, but humans, and much smaller format - they're only 4x4...

  11. I am so sorry I haven't been around for a while. First of all I wish you a happy New Year!
    Our Christmas was terrible... Our dog, Codi died unexpectedly on Christmas day and we have only just managed to peel ourselves back off the floor since. This made your post of your adorable Pug all the more moving :0?

  12. What's not to love about that face! Can't decide if my favorite of his features is his tongue or those soulful eyes.
    Big congrats on the Make your Mark award. It just proves that the industrious ant does reap his just rewards.
