My Artistic Talents

I fear that some of you good people may have only heard about my mischievous side - my crazy antics - my chewing fetishes - my destructive tendencies - my ears that stand straight up - my penchant for annoying Pixie, etc. So today I would like to tell you all about another side of myself. Oh, don't get me wrong - I am not an angel, nor do I want to be and all that you have heard is most likely true. But besides all that, I am a very talented pup - and when I say talented, I mean artistically. And isn't it true that most artists are temperamental and crazy? I mean lots of artists go insane and stuff like that (hmm, perhaps I shouldn't dwell too long on this point).

OK, where was I - I am an artist - that is where I was. Yes, indeed, I am an artist and I would like to share some of my recent works with you. Currently, I am focusing on small installation pieces that are created during the course of my playing with found objects. I may move on to painting in the future but that would probably be a whole lot easier if I had thumbs.

Here is one of my early works - I call it Still Life with Sock

This one is called Feeling Green? and I created it in honor of the lunar eclipse that I couldn't see last night. I made sure to leave it right in the middle of Pixie's favorite bed so that when she lays down it will go squeeeeeeeeek - it is an interactive piece.

And this is my most recent piece called Toys on Carpet, notice the repeated use of the large and small bones - I find that this gives a raw, grittiness to my work.

Pawtographed copies of these photos of my creations are available upon request, for a small fee of course, I mean I don't want to be no starving artist.

Keep up the good work! Just don't get too serious and cut off one of your ears - they are far too cute for you to lose one of them.
