Yes, I have gone around the bend. Here is Pixel, painted as a Hindu goddess- my true feelings about her come out. Actually, I have wanted to do a painting like this for years. I grew up as a hippie kid in San Francisco surrounded by posters of Krishna and Shiva, etc., and I have always loved this imagery. I worked hard to be faithful to the iconography of the form. I am thinking I might do a series of these with all three of my dogs and have them printed as cards. They might be just weird/funny enough to sell.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Thanks for the enthusiasm, Fonda. smile.gif I am excited about doing some stuff that floats my personal boat. The next will be of Georgie. It will be united in spirit to this one by it's kitsch sensibility. My hope is to do some stuff that breaks out of the Italian Greyhound Ghetto, so to speak, and appeals to the population at large. In my secret heart I would like to get into a gallery.
