Stanzie on Canvas

Back in the good old days, when Mom and Dad had more green papers...
they were enjoying a pizza and a brew at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.
As you can imagine, the place is decorated in all things Labrador.

Hanging on the walls, there are beautiful oil on canvas, dog portraits. So one year for Dad's birthday, Mom contacted the artist and had Leo's portrait done.
Then several years later for Mom's birthday.
Dad had Matt Warford, paint Stanzie's portrait
Click here:Matt Warford, to see the entire gallery of Matt's work.

What about Meeeee, Wyatt?
Mom says, we are out of wall space and green papers. Doggone it! :)



  1. Those are beautiful. One of these days, I'm going to commission an artist to do something like that for Marge, too. I LOVE good photography, but there's something so beautiful and personal about a painting.

  2. Those are amazing! I hope you are able to save up some more green papers to add another picture! And another wall! :)


  3. What beautiful portraits! Never mind Wyatt, now there's the internet, the whole wide world can see just how beautiful you are!!!! Have a great week. Ros and Oscar

  4. Wow! Those are beautiful!

    Wyatt, you can do a abstract self portrait! have mom spread a canvas/sheet on the floor with some buckets of paint and go wild. I REALLY REALLY want you to do this!

  5. They are beautiful! We understand the green papers though or the lack of we should say!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  6. Wow. He is very talented!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  8. Those are just beautiful. Maybe you need to put it on your Santa Paws list. Mom has always wanted to surprise Dad with something like that of Dakota. Maybe one day.

  10. Maybe they could play the lottery to win money to have yours done!

    They really are beautiful!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  11. What a brillo paws painting of Stanzie!

    We think you deserve to be on canvas Wyatt and your mom should make wall space and save up some green papers.

    How about we start a petition...
    "We Want Wyatt on canvas"

    The Thugletsx

  12. Isn't like magic when an artist can capture your dogs essence on canvas. I just love the portraits we have had done of Ryker. You know Wyatt, their are many fantastic artists at that are very reasonable if your mom and dad wanted to make some more wall space. We paid only 100.00 for the colored pencil portrait and that included shipping from Australia! Artist Karen Hull

  13. We will cross our paws that you get your portrait painted too, Wyatt! There is nothing more special than having your very own painting hanging in your house!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Thanks for sending the pictures. They are perfect. I tried to email you back, but the email bounced back. The big finale will post on Saturday.

  16. Wow! Those are incredible portraits! Stanzie is very lucky ;) Sorry George. But, maybe a different artist that doesn't want too many greenbacks will paint you :) If not, well...Mom could turn you into a toon BOL! Just kiddin or .... not ;)

    Waggin at ya,

  18. Beautiful portraits! Yes Wyatt you should insist on your portrait!

  19. I'm thinkin you should get in touch with ASTA. I'm just sayin'.

  20. Hi Wyatt,
    I surely know about not having enough green papers Wyatt b/c we don't have many of those papers!!! There are a lot of things we would love to have and there just isn't enough of them!!
    Tom surgery, all though, much cheaper then it would be in the US was really not cheap and took a lot of green papers.
    I emailed you this afternoon and your carrier would not except it. I don't know why. It is no big thing just wanted you to know.
    XXOO, Bambi & Fern

  21. The portraits are pawesome!
    I am sure you will have yours too!
    Kisses and hugs

  22. Hi all!
    If anyone was trying to e-mail us today, it got sent back, because our mailbox was full. We had not dumped the trash bin in awhile. All fixed now!!


  23. Wow...looks so real! Don't worry Wyatt! They love you just the same!

  24. Those portraits are great! I sure hope your mom and dad save some green papers!


  25. It always happens that way Wyatt, there are never any pictures of the younger kids! Maybe after the big Christmas tree season mom and dad will have more green paper!

    Speaking of Christmas trees, I wanted to use the redwoods that the crazy driver knocked down for Christmas but Hubby and a neighbor had them cut up and in the green recycling can before I could say "leave it"! Tell your mom they never caught the guy but our fence is fixed so Sunny and Oreo are happy to be off the porch and free to run the big yard!

  26. Hi Wyatt. Those portraits are beautiful!

  27. Those a grrreat portraits! We bet it won't be long, before you get your own!

  28. Those are most fabulous paintings. But dear Wyatt,we think you should have one hanging somewhere at your house too...OR you could say that the one of Leo is YOU! Hoomans have trouble telling one handsome Dale from another anywhooo. We know whatcha mean about the green stuff. Things are tight all around. Mom has mentioned puting US to work. Sheesh. Only if there are some modeling jobs open. BOL!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  29. What a wonderful portrait! I found a talented artist at the Crufts dog show 2 years ago. I asked her to do one of Buddy. I have used it for my business logo! Have a look at my other blog (dogblog

  30. That is furry beaWOOtiful!

    PeeEssWoo: Maybe woo should ask Asta about what she pawed!
