Yankee Pug Dog Club
2007 Fund Raiser
The Yankee Pug Dog Club based in Hartford Connecticut is the first and oldest Pug Club in New England. They are kicking off the start of their fourth decade with this fundraiser. You have an opportunity to win a magnificent 14" x 18" portrait painting of your champion; your champion of the show ring or the sofa! You do not need to have a Pug to win, any breed or creature that is the object of your desire is eligible. All animals have captivated Nan in her life and art.
The winner of the drawing will have a grand 14" x 18" portrait created from supplied images. The finished painting will be framed and ready to hang and its image will be posted here upon completion.
The drawing was held on November 25, 2007. More information may be found at the YPDC website www.yankeepugdogclub.org The winner's commissioned portrait will be displayed here when Nan has completed it.
Grand Prize Winner
Congratulations to the grand prizewinners Al & Jacqueline Hofer Aljac Pugs of New Jersey. Nan's painting is of their excelent Pug champion BIS BISS Ch. Aljac Braveheart "Capone".I was thrilled when I found out that the Hofers had won the raffle. I have admired their beautiful Pugs, particularly "Capone". I took his show picture and turned it into a garden setting referencing my own garden photos. I added natural light and I believe the results give a life like atmosphere for the wonderful Capone.
