Personalized artwork

I recently made these these pieces for some boater friends that I wanted to share. I love making artwork personalized like this because it’s not just the “same old” anyone can pick up in a retail store but specific to the tastes and interests of the one it was made for.

Birthday painting

It’s Charlie’s birthday today! While we are in mid-reno of his house, he had casually mentioned that perhaps I would paint a mural of some sort on one of the walls, nothing in particular. I thought about it and decided on the perfect subject: his boat. Not wanting to put anything permanent on the walls, however, I – in my waste not, want not, reuse-recycle-repurpose way – went to my garage to check my available stock.

“Charlie’s Boat”  is the result. 48″x62″ on quarter-inch plywood. Our first summer together, we spent several nights anchored out in the Gulf of Mexico on beautiful still waters staring up at all the stars.

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 League’s support. Here I am with Dr. Cal Hay of Tampa Surgical Services who went home with the Doxies. Great time as always!

My fake dog

I don’t think I ever posted a finished shot of this one. Guess who?

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 dog toes ……. little piggies ❤Rico progress2 ❤ #LuvMyOtherDog #LuvMyOtherHuman

 

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. 🙂

A sneak peek at what we’ve been working on …….. a line of 100% cotton shirts, many of which are organic – something that’s important to us – bearing several of our favourite BigBlackDogStudio hashtags!
