Dog Imitates Art

The theme for this week’s Daily Post photo challenge is “Life Imitates Art.”

When I created the “Canid” panel (pictured below), I had a fox in mind. Some folks commented that it looked like my American Eskimo dog, except for the coloring of course.

I’ve been thinking about tweaking the design to make a similar panel to represent my Eskie. Might have to add that to the queue of projects.

In the meantime, enjoy my entry for the “life imitates art” challenge:


Chules, my America Eskimo dog

  1. If that’s your piece of beautiful glass, I guess we all now know from where your inspiration came. 🙂

  2. Just saw as my comment was posting, that your dog’s name is Chihuly. I love Chihuly’s work (Dale, that is) and since you work in glass, it’s a very appropriate name.

    Yes, although the photo came after the panel was built. Chules does resemble an arctic fox at some angles. Glad you like the glass piece.

    I love his work as well, although I’m embarrassed to admit that I live only a few hours from the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit, and have yet to go see it. A “must do” for this summer, I think.

    Thank you! And thanks for commenting.


  7. Oh, Maggie, you must go! I envy you being so close. I’ve seen one exhibit of his work at the Akron Museum of Art in Ohio, a Christmas tree at the White House some years ago, two installations, one at Kew Gardens and one at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens, as well as a few miscellaneous pieces here and there. I love his work!!
