Chihuahua Land

"Rico the Chihuahua"
Original is acrylic on canvas

I couldn't let the week end without a loving and appreciative nod to Gidget, the little Taco Bell Chihuahua that just passed away. Didn't you just love her? I have to say...she was one of my all time favorite TV dogs and gave me lots of laughs over the years. Besides Taco Bell commercials, she also appeared as Reese Witherspoon's sassy companion in "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde."

So in honor of her...I just added one of my earlier paintings of Rico, the Chihuahua to my new Etsy Dog Shop. Thanks for being such a bright star, Gidget! May you rest your paws in peace.

And speaking of peaceful paws...here's a shot of Miss Maisie in my studio this morning...enjoying an unusually calm moment. That's after a walk and a dog park of course!

Have a great summer weekend!

I've always loved Chihuahua's and Gidget was also a fav of mine. I didn't realize she was in Legally Blond.

sleeping dogs are so sweet, or is that sleeping children?

I also like the idea from you below post of having a shop just for dog portraits....WONDERFUL.

Maisie looks so content. I agree that little Gidget was a superior TV dog. So glad you have posted a painting in honor of her!!!
