Sara and Schipperke

Here is my messy desk, working on a painting....

Progress shop of Sara and Schipperke

And here is the final!

Sara and Schipperke

Acrylic and ink on illustration board. I don't know if its finished or not. I might add a background digitally. Schipperkes (skipper-key) are the best dogs that look like little flying foxes to me. I just love their super black fuzzy fur and they way their legs kick out when they run. I will sit through a dog show on TV to see one.

Admittedly, sometimes when I finish a print, I look at it and think "Who would buy this?" I mean, except someone with my exact interests. Haha. People SHOULD have the same interests as me!!

I think this might be my first dog ever? Can I still be a cat lady?

*UPDATE*
I added a nice striped background and listed it in my shop...

  1. your paintings are always so lovely to look at. i had never heard of this breed of dog before... they do look familiar though.

    and i was a dog lover before i became a cat lover, so yes, you can still be a cat lady :)

  2. This is so cool - love it! And yes, you can still be a cat lady for sure! I'm a cat lady, but, I have a HUGE weakness for all animals! I must say that I watched the Westminster Dog Show this past week and if they showed the breed you mentioned, I missed it. It's adorable in your print!

  3. I love it! Those dogs are so cute... I never really thought about their similarity to foxes, but you're right. Really cute painting. :-)

  4. Wow, I do like that new painting. I'm so used to painting in Photoshop that I find it a marvel when someone is able to paint images like that in real life. It is super, super cool.

    I was bored and doing a Google image search and put in the word Schipperke which lead me to your site. I have one of these little creatures, they're great! I always thought they look like South American fruit bats. They seem very much like a cross between a cat and a dog in one.

  10. My dog's name is Lino. He is half Pommeranian, quarter Chiuhahua, quarter Skipperke. Your art perfectly illustrates his smile, and he definately kicks his legs out when he walks or runs. He would love to lick your ears off, trust me.

    I rescued a Schipperke about six months ago. Your art perfectly captures his mischievious spirit. I love it and think you are very talented.
