Summer of dogs, drawings and friends

Even dogs seem to prefer the summer – wanting double the walks per day. And I displayed double the art at my dog drawings exhibition in Muswell Hill, London. Halfway through, I changed out my charcoals to color, by unleashing some oil pastel art.

Despite using sometimes only minimal markings, a friend who came to visit, kindly praised my charcoal drawings for still capturing the dogs’ personalities. It was rewarding to get to see a room full of just charcoal giclée prints too. The larger versions, 13” x 19” sizes of the German Shepherd, dachshund, whippet, bulldog, French Bulldog, poodle, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Chihuahua Mix, Yorkshire Terrier and boxer greeted everyone at La Miel café with a bright and brawny show.

I débuted two new dog drawings, at my exhibition, of the Cane Corso and the Borzoi. The more I create dog drawings, the more I’m astounded by these much doted upon denizens of Creation. Who would think the Cane Corso would have the protective traits of a children’s nanny. And what about the Borzoi behaving a little like the family cat?

If it weren’t for a friend of 27 years from back in art college, who plumped on buying a pug (before getting pregnant,) I wouldn’t have been drawing dogs at all. I met up with Gizmo, and my friend and her boyfriend on a day trip to Brighton. And in this video (below,) I’m amazed again, this time, at how a little dog who hasn’t seen me in months, could recognize me as I arrive at the station among dozens of people.

So whether it’s black and white or full color drawings like those of the German Shepherd, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Chihuahua, pug, Yorkshire Terrier, boxer and Doberman – there are plenty of dog days of summer left to buy some pedigree art!

My “It Sparkles” art exhibit was just the ticket for us in North London back in the summer!

Here’s my video report of how, I felt, the art prints of my pink dog drawings and landscapes permeated with heightened color really did let the ‘light’ in. Just imagine how well this art does its job throughout the winter!
