About

Chihuahua Love 

A FEW FACTS & INFO ABOUT MY PROJECT: 

In March of 2012 my husband and I adopted a Chihuahhua mix named Max. We hadn't planned on adopting a Chihuahua or any other dog. He didn't have a home and there we were. He was a scared little guy who had been moved around a few times and didn't know what to make of his new surroundings. I had never had a Chihuahua before or spent much time around them until he came along.  After a couple of months he grew on us along with his funny personality. Since then I've learned to appreciate a Chihuahua's personality and unique features. If I can describe a chihuahua in one word it would be character. 

Since adopting our little guy I have wanted to make prints and greeting cards out of some of the Chihuahau inspired paintings I've done. Their unique features are like no other dog. The small face is in sharp contrast with the big pointy ears. 

With this project I am testing the waters on a new venture for me. With the pledge money I will have some printed pieces and greeting cards to help me get started. My goal is to make more paintings like these this year and have prints made out of them. Much of the money made through art sales goes right back into my art. 

What you will get for your pledges? 

Everyone who pledges even a dollar will get a hand written thank you card from me. Check side bars for more thank you items including prints, greeting cards and a couple of original pieces of art. All prints will be signed by me. Kickstarter is an all or nothing project. If the $750 goal is not reached in the designated time I will recieve nothing. Please share so I reach my goal. Below are the three paintings that will be made into prints and greeting cards. 

My funny Valentine. One of the paintings to be made into a 100 greeting cards.

Risks and challenges

People often ask me to make prints of my work. I have not invested in making more than a handful of prints yet. The risk involved in this project is finding the right audience. This is true for all art. While many people like dogs in general I realize not all of them are fans of Chihuahuas. Regardless I'm not one to give up easily.
