Art time!

A few months ago, I talked Steven into going to Maker Faire with me. We had a great time, and while we were there, we met an artist, Seth Minor, who had a small table there. He makes a lot of stuff, but his focus at the faire was wire portraits.

We asked him if he would do our portraits, including Shelby.

He said he had never done a pug before, but I think he did quite well.

Wire portraits

I didn't see the reference photos that Steven sent to him, but I'm assuming the one of Shelby had a bit of an indignant expression. She has definately given me this look when she wants something.

Shelby, all wired up

I love the wire art! What a unique thing to do. And a pug too! Excellent!

I think the wire artist captured Shelby's
expression perfectly--whether she was exasperated or simply showing her determination....she is so cute.
Winnie, has Shelby ever fallen asleep on
her back, with all four legs in the air?
I had a Boston Terrier who used to do it
once in a while and it was so cute.
Please take a picture of Shelby if you
can capture her in a sleeping repose.
Thank you, Winnie.

She can have ANYTHING at my house . It would have to be under "safe" but ANYTHING.

One of Shelbys many fans,

I LOVE how he put "wrinkles" at the top of her wire head!

Yes, she sometimes does sleep on her back.
