Customer Photo Gallery ~ Knox Loves his New Dog Bed!

My friend Janet B. from PA just rescued 3 more puggies to add to her family and now has 7! Bless her heart. She is so wonderful.
A few weeks ago, Janet emailed me to let me know she was going to meet and pick up one pug and she came home with 3. I smiled and knew what happened! She could not leave any of them behind.
Here is Knox who just came home on Saturday. I think he has claimed the new dog bed as his already!
Welcome home Knox, Becca and Butch and thank you Janet for sharing the photo for our Customer Photo Gallery!
I love receiving your feedback, photos and stories! Please feel free to contact me anytime!
I would love to post your pug photos and stories in the Customer Photo Gallery and the Quarterly Newsletter in the Meet The Pugs section.

The Fall Newsletter will arrive in your inbox in October. Please sign up to receive your very own copy.
Emmitt and I are already working on it and would love to share his favorite recipe, photos, stories and events! It is jam packed with fun!

How I Paint My Pugs – A69

The Pug Kiss
Acrylic on wood
8 x 10
Hi everyone! I am so excited to show you my latest pug painting. I call it The Pug Kiss.
I had so much fun painting it and I remembered to stop along the way and take some pictures to show you how I created it.
The first thing I do is sketch my painting on a piece of 8 x 10 hemlock wood.

Then I start filling in the fur and shading. You can see I have started on the black pug here.

I left the pink tongue blank for now and moved onto the fawn pug.

He is coming along. Just the nose, tongue, background and fine lines to go.

And here they are just before the final touches.

I love how this painting turned out. I cannot believe this is my 69th pug painting. 🙂

It is available on all of my products where you can choose the design. I hope you enjoyed this little snapshot into my painting process.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
