'How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the wagglely tail.
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale.'
I just love animal portraits and this one stole my heart when I saw it.
What a little charmer!
Pastoral and animal portraits are loved in French Country decorating
and some of my favorite designers love to bring animal paintings in
to their spaces.
Charles Faudree is my favorite and he is the king of
decorating with dog portraits in my book!
But here are some others too:
Passionate for Interiors

I love the simple charm they have
and how adding a painting of an animal makes a room
feel welcoming and comfortable even among expensive furnishings.
I have searched high and low for the perfect vintage and vintage inspired
animal art pieces to bring home and they are not easy to come by.
So I was super excited when I found this vintage inspired
canvas art portrait of a little dog at Gallery Direct.
They have a lot of vintage art pieces as well as modern artist pieces

so there is something for everyone.
You choose the frame you like & your piece arrives
ready to hang in just a few days
I love that they have so much vintage reproduction to choose from.
It's fantastic to find pieces that are similar to my inspirations
in my design books
I am loving him.
Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Here is the link to this artwork for those who have asked.
This is the MEDIUM size and you just chose the frame or style you would
like and it will show you just what it would look like before you order.


I was compensated with artwork for this post
but the opinions as always are my own.

  31. Nevermind. I figured it out. Gallery Direct has an agreement with a stock agency I work with. I am glad you like the portrait of the miniature toy poodle puppy. He is actually a she. Her name is Abby.
