Country Keeshond


This is what I've been fiddling around with. I'm sure it can't be done yet. Something always needs to be changed every time I stare at it. I want this to look like an old folk art style painting, like it's painted on a piece of wood.

After working on this, I have ideas for a lot more... and to make some interesting stuff with other dog breeds.

OK, now it's as finished as it's going to be. I just uploaded the new one with touch-ups. Probably nobody can tell the difference but me. This design is now available at my Cafepress Shop on a number of different products.

You are a gifted artist. I like it. And it looks to me like you've achieved the look you were seeking--folk art.

Meow said...

That is so good ... I love it. You are amazing. I wish I could paint like that. I agree with Levi, it is a "folk art" effect ... brilliant.
Take care, Meow

I like it. What medium did you use?

Badoozie said...

well, it looks great to my eyes. i can't wait til you do something with daschunds. (hint hint)

I am glad you all like it... I feel pretty good about it, except I have a hard time just liking anything I draw without constantly noticing things I should change.

I just finished it up and now I'm working on putting it up on my cafepress shop. If you guys have any artistic ability or simply ideas for words on T-shirts you should open your own cafepress shop. I have been doing pretty well with it. Not a millionaire or anything, but especially over Christmas it sold quite a bit.

Seeker, I'm hoping one would guess oil or acrylic... my medium is 100% Photoshop!

Susie, Daschunds are next on my list. I have one little daschund design in the Christmas section in my cafepress shop and the little ornament sold like mad! I want to have a lot more weiner dog art, including a black and brown one like yours.

oooooooooh, I like it. I'm not a country art afficianado, but it's really excellent.

Muley said...

This looks great! Just like a vintage folk art painting by Grandma Moses or one of the fampus folk artists. I think any dog owner would love seeing his or her favorite breed immortalized in one of your paintings in this style. I think you have a winning idea, Jenn!

Saur and Muley, thanks! I'll need to start a whole line of these... from Airedales to Yorkies.
