Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Chihuahuas Make Me Laugh

This is a special dog, Chipper the Chihuahua.  I follow him on Facebook and in the Chihuahua Mamas group.  His Mama let me paint him and put the artwork up on Ebay with 25% of the sale going to her favorite Chi Transport Charity.  I have such an affinity for dogs with great expressions and Chip never disappoints.  His Mama has literally hundreds and hundreds of Chip photos for me to choose from.  I am still painting his fabulous face.
