My Little Pug is Famous, Yo!

If you read my blog a few weeks back, I mentioned that our pug, Guapo (see pic), was going to be featured in an article for the Journal Sentinel! Well, the real star of the piece is my hubby's cousin Alicia Rheal, who is an arist in the Madison, WI area.

Alicia is uber talented and she did a previous piece of our other pug Gus as a wedding gift to us a couple of years back. The portraits she paints are actually made out of wood, instead of canvas, and she cuts and paints them into life-size works of art.

Guapo finally arrived a few weeks ago and he's settling in just nicely by the fireplace :) 

There's even a video of Alicia working on Guapo's portrait in her studio in Madison! It's really neat to see her work and talk about her upcoming projects (a life size cow!!).

So, if you're in the market for a portrait of your furred loved one (her prices are very reasonable and quoted in the article), you must check out Alicia's website at
