Filling the Pug Cave ~ Art from the Heart!

 
Hi everyone!
 
Today is and extra wonderful Wednesday here!
 
I have new things to show you!
 
I just purchased new art I got to fill Archie's Pug Cave! :)
 
It is art from the heart in two ways since they were created from the hearts and hands of 2 dear friends of mine and they make my heart sing when I look at them!
 
I am so excited that they are mine!
 
I feel very lucky!

 
The first one is this breathtaking Iris painted in oil on canvas by my amazing friend, Nancy Medina.
 
Isn't it magical?

 
I hung it in the pug cave right on the wall across from where I always sit and work on fiber art with Archie by my side.
 
It is my favorite spot in the whole house!
 
 
The second piece I have to show you came all the way from the United Kingdom!
 
My dear friend Lynne has an extremely talented son Lee who has an etsy shop filled with his dog portraits.
 
I fell in love with this pug as soon as I saw it.
 
It really captures Archie's sweet expressions!

 
 
Archie love the drawing so much that he pulled our BOTH of his monkey toys!
 
One to snuggle with and one to share with his new pug drawing!
 
Tee Hee!
 
Art is Life... Life is Art!
