Howdy folks! Some of you may know me from other boards. I have a dog portrait business called Iconicdog- here is the link: http://iconicdog.com/

While I paint all breeds, I do seem to specialize heavily in IG's. Something about having three of them myself, I suppose...!

Here is a portrait of Razzo, a cute guy who wears eye-makeup.

Beautiful work, Gwen! And I've painted Razzo myself, awhile back (that's part of his painting in my signature).

I love your backgrounds too!

If I recall; the painting Billie made of Guido was done on speculation / for promotion and it was out of my budget at the time; but she loaded the image at her cafepress store; so I was able to buy a few coffee cups! They are cherished items at my home and my Mom's. People fight over the "Guido Cup" :wub:

Not just anybody can get Guido garb. . And for the record. . I have made Guido calenders, Guido mouse pads Guido mugs and Guido T-shirts. . .At the California K9 Kitchen cafepress store. . (all items CK9K) the only item available there exclusively for the ladies is "Guido" thong underwear :headbang2: People have asked me about that :( I really don't know why I did that either. . just thought it was funny!

ETA
I forgot about the Guido leash! :LOL:

Yep, I saw a photo you had taken of him and asked if I could paint from it, it was what I call a "spec painting", which means the person who lets/lends me the image is under no obilgation to buy it, it's not commissioned, but I give the owner first dibs...if he doesn't buy it, then I can offer it up to the public. In Guido's case though I kept it for myself after Joe didn't buy it, and put "Got Caffeine" on it and put it on some CafePress items...the expression just cracks me up! LOL
