Happy Birthday "Happy"!

"Edith was known as Happy because she was exactly that all the time. Happy was a beautiful woman full of life and generosity. She had a young, gentle spirit. At 80's old she loved to take a ride in the convertible with her scarf and sunglasses and wave to all the folks on the avenue."

"Happy" Edith

Beagles on The Trail

12x16" custom Pet Portrait Painting in Oils by puci

Trailblazers Cam (Beagle) & Joey (Beagle-Mix) blaze the trail along Pukaskwa National Park in Ontario, Canada. But all the howling is up to Cam, because Joey has never barked.

Cam & Joey's Auntie writes:
"My sister takes them camping and hiking every summer. My mother has a house up north in the woods and they love going there as well..."

Handsome Alfredo

8x10" custom oil portrait painting by puci

Alfredo's daughter writes:
"Alfredo loved to dance, sing and tell jokes. He was a very hard worker and was the boss of everyone. He was very vain. He owned Belvedere Pizza because in Italian it means nice looking pizza cause he fancied himself nice looking. He missed his calling. He should have been in show business. He passed in 1995."

Portrait of a Frenchie

No, I'm not talkin' about some of my favorite painters like Frenchmen Henri Matisse, Camille Pissarro or Édouard Manet, I'm talkin' about Frenchie HANK, the French BullDog.

Some touching feedback re Hank's oil portrait:
"... She really captured Hank's funny personality in a realistic and special way. I can't wait to show my fiance the painting for his birthday! Not only was the process an easy one, but the end result is so impressive. The quality of the finished painting is top notch. I am sure once my fiance sees this, we will have another order for a painting of our other dog. I highly recommend working with puci!!!"
