Custom Painted Wine Glasses

It was only a matter of time before I would combine two of my loves: Dogs and Wine. Since I've been working at a Vineyard for over a year now, it only makes sense to bring my two worlds together!

Below are two glasses with my pups painted on them, Mya (half cavalier king charles spaniel/chihuahua) and Tomoe (American Dingo aka Carolina Dog).

Here is the item's listing on my Etsy shop: Custom Wine Glass

I am excited to see what the response may be on this new creation in Amy's Creative Corner!

Stories behind pet portraits

As you may know, I work at a vineyard as the manager and event coordinator (for my "real" job) and I have had the chance to meet great people. One of our regular customers brings their little guy, Amus, to enjoy some nightlife at the winery. His wife asked me to paint his portrait for his birthday and it was a fun surprise for him!

The painting of the pup in the truck bed also has a happy story. This customer gave a portrait to his friend because the dog had gone missing! The recipient of the painting was heartbroken, as he thought that his little friend was gone forever. This friend, my customer, had me paint his portrait in memory of him so he could have something to remember him by. After I had already started working on the portrait, however, I got a message that he was found! He returned home and all was well. He still wanted the portrait though! :)

Customer Photos with their paintings

My customers are just wonderful. I love it when they share their happy moments with me, letting me know how much their paintings mean to them. Here are a couple examples of happy recipients of my work.

Spring is here and in full gear

I've been busy in Amy's Creative Corner lately, which is a great thing. It is tricky having a "real" full time job, plus having a "hobby" job. But things always work out… it may be stressful and you may feel like your brain is going to explode or you want to stab your eye balls out, but just breathe. :) And take your dogs on a nice, long walk! You'll feel better. And so will they.

Creepy Cute Art Show at ZaPow!

More recently, I have been getting requests for pets painted in costumes. I must say, I thoroughly enjoy this!! It makes me laugh out loud. Here is "Napoleon Dog" and below is "Dexter Kitty." The illustration and pop art gallery, ZaPow, (where my space dog and kitty paintings are), is having a Creepy Cute Art Show today and I submitted this painting of Dexter Kitty. Since it is in Asheville, NC, I won't be able to attend the opening, but I am so excited to see how things go today!
