Thank you with a wagging tail!

In der letzten Zeit habe ich viel an Designs für Stoffe gearbeitet und einige Hunde portraitiert. Das hat mich auf die Idee gebrach, diese beiden Dinge zusammen zu bringen und eine Serie mit verschiedenen Hunden vor ornamentalen Hintergründen zu machen. 

Es sind inzwischen ca. 12 von diesen Bildern entstanden, die ich als Kunstdrucke in limitierter Auflage anbieten will - die Serie heißt " Chouchoux du Monde" - was man mit Lieblinge der Welt übersetzen könnte ;) Hier kann man sie bestellen.

Macht Euch also darauf gefasst, in Kürze noch mehr "tierische" Kunstwerke hier zu finden! Ich wünsche Euch ein wunderbar entspanntes undn inspirierendes Frühlingswochenende - Ah, der Fliederduft in der Luft!

I've worked a lot on design ideas of fabric lately - and did some dog portraits. So i got the idea of bringing these 2 things together and creating a series of dogs in front of ornamental backgrounds. The series is called  Chouchoux du Monde"  and it's available as limited edition art prints - in case you need a little present for a dog lover - or yourself! You can order the prints here.

Another weekend os here. It looks damp and grey here today, but i love the smell of lilac in the air and the gardens around look so beautiful. Hope you'll have a relaxed and inspiring time to "freshen up your batteries" lovelies. Will come and visit you soon!

  1. I was just thinking of you dearest friend! And here you are, with your colorful and uplifting world. I LOVE THIS GUY! And the idea of playing with the two ideas, fabric design and dog art, what a great idea. I am enjoying my watercolor print so much, and also hoping to get your article done. I have been ill for a month now, slowing me down. But our spring is finally emerging, and I am enjoying even the gray days because it is so much warmer now!

    Have a lovely day. The sun is only BEHIND the clouds....

  4. Sweet Martina! So good to see you this morning! Well, you just say the word, and we shall have our Skype visit! I am thrilled to know that this will be a possibility! I believe by the middle of May I must get the articles submitted. If it does not work out to Skype before then, I do have enough material to finish. We are going out later today; the weather is FANTASTIC! Big hugs to you dear one. Anita
