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…

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:…

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 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…

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. 🙂

Sneak peek

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!

Monthly union meeting

So, we had our monthly union meeting this afternoon to discuss our newest project to launch…….. will be announcing it soon!

Etsy store now open

Very exciting – we now have a presence on Etsy! Please stop by and visit us at http://www.etsy.com/shop/BigBlackDogStudio The boys are excited!

Red Dachshund

I had started working on a Dachshund over the summer, then set him aside since he wasn’t a commissioned piece. I primed him and then thought perhaps I should post his “ready-to-be-personalized” photo in case someone would like him personalized to their own Doxie’s…

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:

Toes

Working on the toes of a pair of Cocker Spaniels today.

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…

Progress

Making progress on the face of one-eyed Boxer mix, Hoot:

Boxers – in progress

A pair of life-sized Boxers is in the works – blast this infuriating humidity, though! Here the boys are coming along as their ears dry in the breeze of my fan. 😀

Turtle with speckled shell

This guy came out a cutie! He’s 5″ high by 13″ long.
