One of my absolute favorite artists, Karin Jurick, has a show of one of my most favorite subjects; Dogs, opening today in Asheville, NC. In addition to her increasingly popular 'museum watchers' paintings, her paintings of dogs are getting scooped up before you can say "woof".
Believe it or not, only ONE of the paintings from her Dogs Rule series is still available (see below) and the show hasn't even opened!
Above: 6" x 6" oil on masonite and framed in a black floater frame, A dog karin spotted in Decatur, Georgia.
The rest are already sold (all are oil on masonite measuring 6"x 6" and framed in a black float frame). But, if you aren't one of the lucky purchasers, nor are you able to attend her show in North Carolina, enjoy them here:
2 dogs she spotted at the Decatur Arts festival
A pair of basset hounds in Manhattan
The late and great Dewey, her friend's dog
A red Hound found in Piedmont Park, Atlanta
A Yorkie on Michigan Avenue, Chicago

...and her happy dog, Jack

In addition to being a talented painter, Karin is obviously a dog-lover. When I asked her if I could do a post on her Dogs Rule series and show, she replied humbly and added "i think i could paint dogs every single day and be happy."
See her own 2 adorable pooches below:

For those of you who don't read this blog regularly I was the fortunate recipient of one of Karin's dog paintings in honor of my late companion, Abbey (see below).

I have been collecting Karin's work for years now and have a fondness for her heart as well as her art.
The show does not only have her dog paintings but also includes several other wonderful pieces. Go see it if you're anywhere near North Carolina this month. You won't be sorry.
