1000 Dog Portraits


1000 Dog PortraitsI honestly had long forgotten submissions that I made a year ago answering a call out to dog artists to be considered for a book on modern dog portraiture.
Hadn’t given it another thought about it again until I got some good news yesterday!
Six of my Labrador Retriever paintings are included Rockport Publishers’ new book 1,000 Dog Portraits by Robynne Raye!

1,000 Dog Portraits showcases a compilation of quirky, fun, fanatical illustrations, paintings, and drawings from artists around the globe.

I am thrilled to be included and I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy.
The book is available for pre-order if you are a collector of dog related books like I am.

February Daily Paint Challenge

daily paintHi Folks!
I am gearing up to commit to painting daily for the month of February.
Many of my artist peers and friends have taken up daily challenges from 30 days to a year or more!
Honestly, I have been too chicken to commit to these challenges out of fear…not having enough subject matter, not completing the challenge…any excuse I can think of, really.
I think a challenge will beat the winter blahs and get me to stop procrastinating!
I have decided to do a 4 week challenge starting February 3rd…Monday-Friday for the month of February and I need your help. I will be painting 20 small paintings and I am looking for models for my paintings.
If you would like to share with me photos of your dog (it doesn’t have to be a Labrador Retriever this time!) that you think would make an awesome painting, please email me your photos to me at molly@granitedog.com with “challenge” in the subject line for consideration. You may send as many as you like. Including your name and pets name in the body of the email.
*Please send high quality photos that have been taken by YOU only. I cannot use third party photos taken by others including professional pics.
If I choose to paint from your image, you are not obligated to purchase the painting, but will have first option to buy. All the paintings will be in 6×6” or 5”x7” format acrylic on panel and available at special pricing of $100.00 each with complimentary shipping.
At the end of the challenge, I will donate a portion of any sales to Joe Maringo’s Southwest Pennsylvania Retriever Rescue Org(SPARRO)/Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs.
Thank you for your participation!!!
Molly A Poole Artist
