Artists and Their Pet Dogs

14 Jun


Hello there Jewels,

I recently had the opportunity to see the Pablo Picasso exhibit at The Art Gallery of Ontario, and I have been artistically inspired since then, only now I feel like a big folk! Picasso was advanced beyond his time, and his work is still, and will remain extremely modern for decades to come. I am still processing the experience. His ability to comprehend that we do not view objects, people, etc., in one dimension was genius, thus Cubism was born. Because I have been artistically inspired since then I thought I would author a post in honor of some of my favorite artists/authors.


Andy Warhol took very simple objects and turned them into very pop, boom! We have pop art! Although he did not develop pop art, we all remember him because of it. I wonder if I painted a “stop sign” or took a picture of one if it would become a hit?


E.B. White: what can I say he has to be everyone’s favorite childhood author, who didn’t like Charlotte’s Web and who can forget good old Wilbur. It is probably the first book I read.


Adele: probably one of the most talented artist of this generation. I love how her music focuses on her vocal capabilities which takes you back to the classics, I am sure her music will become timeless.


And here I am with my dog in front of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia (upcoming jewelry designer (God willing), maybe I can make it big like Picasso’s daughter Paloma Picasso designing for Tiffany and Co., okay maybe not that big, but if you don’t have a dream how will you make it come true right)?

What are your dreams Jewels, we would love to know?

Anyway, are you seeing a pattern here? Some of the most influential artists owned dachshunds! Who can blame them with their almond shaped eyes, distinctive faces’, long bodies’, short legs’, stubborn, and pushy personalities’ it is hard to resist these little dogs.

Hope you have a Tremendous Thursday and thank you for visiting us,

Monica

    That is such a lovely picture of you and your pooch. Always dream big. If you receive half of what you’ve dreamed after dreaming big, just imagine what you’ll have. I wish you every success in becoming the wonderful jewelry designer you are destined to be. My dream… may I be a successful blogger and vintage store owner. Wishing you the best!

      Designing for Tiffany & Co. is not dreaming too big, your work is beautiful, it could happen;).
