I have wanted to do this painting for quite awhile- one just for me. I love my Pixel to death, and am much taken by how her appearance is both utterly adorable and also frankly pretty weird. When people think that IG's are strange looking dogs, it is iggy's like Pix they are thinking of. She looks like a cute Disney alien, all eyes and legs. She is Ms. intensity, packed with the life force, just vibrating with fierce girl dog energy. I chose to paint her with Kiwanos, also known as African horned melons, because I think they look like they come from another planet.
