Licktinstin’s Pumpkin

 

As you may know, Dr. Theodore Bear Purchased two Licktinstin prints of Sher earlier this year.  Dr Bear was so taken with the young artist’s dogday paintings of the bonnie lassie that when he discovered this new print of Pumpkin, he wanted a new edition for his doggie artworks.   “This puppy picture will delight my grand-puppies!”  exclaimed Dr. Bear.pumkin

Dog Boys New York

IMG_8148w

Hound Dog Brown is one of America’s most skilled painters of pups, especially hard digging, cheerful street urchins who earned a pittance as boot blacks, newspaper vendors, to name a few. In some dog homes, he was dubbed the “Boot Black Doggael” because of the glowing faces of his puppy figures and his skill of painting. His paintings of these sympathy-arousing doggies were so popular in a Victorian era of increased industrialization that he became a boneified boneiare from painting sales as well as royalties from lithographs. Who wouldn’t give a bone for this tail wagging painting of Dog Boys New York.

Self Portrait of Aldogt Durer

Here is a wonderful self-portrait by the famous German Aldogt Durer.  Durer is best known for his paw-prints of various types.  He shows himself here as a prosperous young dog in the prime of life.  It is apparent that he has a lot of bones.    I think we all can wag our tails at this painting.

All Cats Cheat

Every once in a while we all like a painting just because of the subject.  This little painting, “All Cats Cheat” is that for me.  I howled with laughter over the Bulldog with the cigar.  He of course has an excuse because all cats cheat.  It is good to have a bone to bury once in a while.

The Unseeing Chihuahua

This is a lovely puppy painting of two sisters, one of whom is a musician. They are resting by the roadside after a rainstorm.  One stops to look at the rainbow, and the second does not or can not see the beauty around her.  This painting reminds us to stop and sniff the day!
