I thought it appropriate to re-post these two paintings o' pugs as we are now raising two of them. It's been a interesting process. I'm a classic, majestic lines kinda gal...did I just say gal? I love Labs, Shepherds. Himself is the pug guy. I was against the Lab but seein as how that turned out to be the second best decision he ever made I figured I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and see what happened. I never thought I'd fall as deeply in love with these faces as I have but it's a fact. Himself was right again. I think they are the most beautiful faces ever. Next to Devlin the Wonder Dog of course.
These are absolutely wonderful. The colors and modeling of the faces. Absolutely beautiful job.ReplyDelete
Great paintings, gal... You might want to be careful with that "he's right again" thing. He may use it against you some day.... I know I would... ;-)ReplyDelete
Scrumptiously beautiful!! I'm not a pug owner, but I have several clients who adore these little fellas. How can you not fall in love with all of those wrinkles, and that love me look on their little pug mug? These are both just perfect; very well done.ReplyDelete
Excellent. I love the expressive eyes and the wonderful brushstokes. Well done.ReplyDelete
Suzanne, what a great idea! Who knows, you might be the next 'Oprah's best things' with your shirts! Make sure you check out my newest brain child, MyArtTutor.com (spread the word)ReplyDelete
Becky Joy, thank you so much! When I did them I didn't have Pugs. Now the paintings look so different to me because of the pups.ReplyDelete
Don, you are so right. He's already using it! I'll be more careful. And thanks! The Gal
Angela, thank you so very much for your kind words. I really appreciate them.
Joan, thank you so much! I so appreciate your words.
Vicki, thanks so much. Now that would be nice. I'm off to check out MyArtTutor.com and I'll be happy to spread the word.
These are so beautiful! What an amazing feat to paint faces that only a mother could love and make them noble and intelligent.ReplyDelete
BTW, my 15 year old son would LOVE to have a pug. I have allergies, so we have no animals in the house. Pugs would not do well outside here in north Idaho. For one thing it's way too cold in the winter and for another thing, they'd be owl, coyote, cougar, bear, or wolf bait!
Awwww...who wouldn't love that face? You've done a fantastic job of capturing the intelligence and personality of this adorable little dog!ReplyDelete
Suzanne, these are absolutely gorgeous. It's great to be on Daily Painters with you (I am new to the group) and to find out you have pugs too!I They have a way of taking ownership of your heart, don't they? We have three little fatties, Howard Pee Pugpants, Anniebelly Bossybritches, and Java Cheesy - they make us laugh every day. Love your work and congrats!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful. Puppy love! So glad they've wriggled right into your heart. Happy holidays!ReplyDelete
So many colors in the fur and face! I love it!ReplyDelete
Excellent dog portaits, Suzanne!
Cute, cute, and did I say cute?
Hi Suzanne, Just added your little pug on my blog. He's adorable.ReplyDelete
Wow these two paintings are amazing, absolutely brilliant! You have captured their characters as well as their features. You are so talented and you have doubts?ReplyDelete
