Here are some of my favorite works of art.
The first is Puppy by Jeff Koons. He usually lives in Bilboa, Spain, but in the summer of 2000, he came to live in Rockefeller Center in New York. He was 43 feet high and covered with real flowers. My Mommy's office was right around the corner at the time, so even though I wasn't born yet, I think Puppy planted an idea in Mommy's head about getting an extra large terrier puppy of her own!
A few years ago, we met a very nice young man from England named Laurence Richardson who is a natural history artist. He creates illustrations and paintings for zoos and museums and aquariums. He also is very good at playing ball with me. If you go to his site, you'll see my portrait representing his dog paintings. He used graphite and tea to create my portrait. Mommy thinks he really captured my expressive eyes.
Mommy recently went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see some more Jeff Koons sculptures on the roof. (I couldn't go.) Her favorite was this big balloon dog sculpture. This is what I'd look like if I went to paw-lates with Mica! Hee hee.
We went to visit our good friends at Jeffreys and they had a fashion display with characters from the Archie cartoons. I know they were drawn a long time ago, but I can't help but think I bear a certain resemblance to this fellow.
Finally on our tour of my favorite dog art is this collage I inspired. Can you guess the famous (and fabulous) artist??? It's Myrna and Asta's Mommi!!! My Mommy just had a birthday (she's a little over 7 dog years...) and Mommi created this birthday present. I think I look very handsome here, don't you?
