New Pug Art ...





I am so excited to share the new pug art I have acquired for my art collection over the last few weeks.


The first wonderful creation is Pugsly created by the genius doll maker, Nichol Brinkman, of Pink Cheeks!


Some of you may remember Clarence and Flannery, my first two dolls. Well now my family has Pugsly in it too. Notice how I did not say the family was complete? This is because I will never stop collecting her dolls. :)



My second wonderful piece to show you is a framed pug collage from artist, Boutikihut on Etsy.

Isn't it wonderful?! I love all of the creative ways people capture the image of the pug.




and last but not least, my wonderful and talented friend Diana Evans, creates these wonderful wood pendants, and she made me a pug! Notice the cupcake around his neck and all of the hearts? She captured my Emmitt's spirit perfectly! Please visit her blog and Etsy shop to see more of her wonderful art.

I look at each one of these pugs everyday in my office and feel joy and inspiration from them.


Life is Art...Art is life!

OMG that pug doll is so CUTE! Honestly. If mom had one of those in the house, she would have to keep it away from me as I would probably chew it, silly dog that I am.
