"Patch," 8" square, Golden Open acrylics on Ampersand gessobord, private collection, portrait of a rescued Greyhound, not for sale. Patches belongs to Brenda and Chris Lynch, owners of Mutt Lynch Winery (see the vineyards in the background?!).
I am so excited to have won the Mutt Lynch Winery label contest. And I'm even more excited to be a part of "Rusty"s wine release at the Dog Days of Summer event (August 14th, 2010).
I'll be there, tasting the wine and all. And signing the limited edition giclee (archival prints) of my wine label design.
But I'll also have my camera in tow, shooting references for future Dog-a-Day portraits. Proceeds from all portraits booked over the Dog Days weekend will support the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals.
So, if you want to crash the party, get yourself a ticket here. And bring your dog - they are welcomed. And then get yourself on my calendar.
And THEN you can meet Patch. The real, live breathing Patch. And have a glass of Rusty. I'll join you. Promise.
In the meanwhile if you cannot wait, inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork and musings with your friends and family.
