Exciting new products have been added to the Pennys & Stamps shop...watercolour prints! Each print is created on a 8.5x11 sheet of Hahnemuhle photo rag and was painted to showcase the traits we love most about our favorite dog breeds. Framing is optional and, if selected, you will be surprised with a hand picked, locally sourced frame. Head over to the store to take a look at what breeds are currently available and keep checking back as new paintings will be continuously added.
Edward was described to me as wild, crazy, smart, friendly, and sometimes...maybe sometimes... just a little bit bad.
Henry was considered the "angel baby". Kind and easy going. Lovable beyond belief.
So, naturally, Edward became the epitome of the charming bad boy; Steve Mcqueen. His look was formed around a classic image of Steve Mcqueen in a black turtleneck sweater, eyes shaded by sunglasses. While looking through images of Edward I noticed he is never without his goofy grin so, of course, that needed to be added as well.
While Edwards look came quickly, Henry took more thought. I painted him with a stoic gaze and classic JFK wear-- simple suit jacket, white shirt, blue tie. He struck me as a charming dog, with his lovable face and calm demeanor. It seemed only natural to have his look influenced by one of the most loved and most intriguing figures of American politics.
To me, Edward and Henry seem like the perfect pair. Completely complementary, total opposites.
