"Pitbull Haute Couture"

My mind never sleeps... This style handbag was screaming the loudest Saturday night during my slumber and then again when I was trying relax during my bi-weekly massage sunday.... I made the 1st one modeled after my youngest pittie, Pikey. Note his ears, I don't think he'd be able to have both "normal" at the same time... Ever. It's just his charm.

This is my first attempt at this style bag. I love it for it's size to fit all my stuff! This one was my learning curve. For the next ones I'm going to make; I enlarged the head a bit to fill the frame and am experimenting with different fabrics and trimming.

This is the 2nd one I made for a very dear friend, Little Darling, founder and president of Pinups for Pitbulls. Using her favorite color "glitter" in mind and her 2nd favorite, pink. I created this one of a kind "Pitbull Couture" purse just for her <3

I will be making more, with a variety of faces and silhouettes for the center piece. Each bag will be one of a kind and sewn by little 'ol me!!!

Now if only I could tell my brain to take a nap sometime... I definitely don't have enough time in a day/week to do everything I want!

3 PitBull Moon

3 PitBull Moon
9x9 acrylic on wooden plaque

Behold the powers of the 3 Pitbull Moon plaque. The most important is the ability to mask any pitbull type dog that is subject to discrimination, to appear to the 'hater' as nothing more than a dog. One who is full of love loyalty and companionship. The person will not see the fear or myths, just the love that lies within.

This painting isn't based on any 3 specific dogs, just 3 pitbull types, all colors and mixes. I painted this for an art auction coming up in June to benefit Pinups for Pitbulls.
