Dogtoberfest 2014

Had a great time with the humans here in Dogedin. Not only did Charlie and I stop in to the kissing booth at Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue’s hot pink tent, but the Doxie sculptures were auctioned off to help raise money for Suncoast Animal…

My lovely assistant on break

He’s been right at my side as I get some of my dog sculptures ready for a March showing here in town.

My Other Dog – continued

Today, I got started on the facial features on Rico. The rest of the weekend portends to be a blur with church supper, pageant and three worship services to play for, so hopefully come Monday, I can add some dog toes. I love doing…

My Other Dog

Since I miss him so much when I don’t have him with me (since he’s not actually my dog), I decided my next piece was going to be one of Rico. This is a sneak peek at how he’s coming along. 🙂

Daisy and Dub finished

The pair of Cocker Spaniels is finished! Thank you to Pat for allowing me to create these memorial pieces of her beloved fur family ♥ Pat’s husband’s little Buddy (a/k/a Dub) measures 15″ high by 11″ wide and Pat’s girl Daisy measures 21″ long…

Cocker Spaniel – Daisy

Daisy was a friend’s beloved Buff Cocker Spaniel who was her sidekick everywhere. Still some more work to go, but here are some progress shots:

BBDS YouTube page

Uploaded a few videos to the BigBlackDogStudio YouTube page, plus added some info for visitors as to what they should hope to find there: Our BigBlackDogStudio YT channel features videos about our Big and Little Black Dogs, Nemo and Rico, respectively. Okay, so we…

Boxer trio at home

It was a sad, yet happy day for me today. I’d grown rather attached to Hoot and Pete these past four weeks as they were becoming themselves, but they were ready to go to their new home. Here are my last photos of The…

Boxer pair – Hoot and Pete

It’s been a fast four weeks working on this life-sized pair, but they are now ready to go to their forever home with Rocky. Hoot was a brindled Boxer mix and Pete was a snow white Boxer. The impression I got from the photographs…

Sculpture class today

Nemo just loves going with me to teach the sculpture class over at the senior center. Constructed from recycled objects and wrapped up with papier mache like little mummies, after construction and addition of clay details like eyes and toes, we switch to the…

Brindled Boxer – Rocky

Just finished the Brindled Boxer today! “Rocky” stands 27″ tall and is 25″ long.

Min Pin and Brindled Boxer in the works

Next up: I’ve got a Min Pin in progress as well as a brindled Boxer.

Boxer – Champ

This Boxer is modeled after my friend’s granddog, Champ. 25″ high x 22″ long.

Dachshund

This Black & Tan Doxie measures 11.5″ high by 20″ long. Along with the Boxer puppy, he is available through Stirling Art Studios on Broadway in Dunedin, Florida.

Boxer puppy

Finished my Boxer puppy this afternoon. He stands 18.5″ high and is 19.5″ long with big puppy feet and scrunchy nose.

Jack Russell Terrier – tri-colour

Jack Russells are very popular in our area! This tri-colour wire-haired JR measures 10.5″ x 12″.

Art class today

Here’s a shot of the class just as they are beginning to paint their papier mache creations – we had two dogs, a piggy and a butterfly going on down at the Dunedin Senior Center. Due to the Toronto Blue Jays beginning their spring…

One of these things is not like the others

Pearl frequently is under my feet in the studio. Chickens are flock animals, so when she and Ruby are bored, or its too chilly or windy outside, or they want a snack, or they want a nap, or any of a myriad of chicken…

Green kitty

Was in a cat kind of mood and have been making a few kitties to balance out against the dog population. This is a green kitty with a flowering cactus. 16″ high.

Pug

Finished painting the Pug today. He’s got a swirly, sparkly dog-coat on for stepping out on the town. 10″ high.
