Pets in art

Today I went to Carre in Tilburg to visit a friend, Roel Sloot who is a great painter, in his working studio. Photo's included are all of the visit. He paints on canvas, totally different from a digital painting. Both kind of ' painting' techniques have there own pro's en con's, but are really totally different art forms! Let me start with some pro's of painting digitally: -less of a mess. My working table is very clean. I don't need to change my clothing when I start painting. No tubes laying...
Rijksmuseum is having an exhibit of artwork that is inspired by Rembrandt. Of course I had to send in The Dogwatch...

Pablo picasso with lump dogs in art
Pablo Picasso, the well known Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer had a little dachshund named Lump, that he adored. Picasso described Lumps as: ' not a dog, he's not a little man, he's somebody else'. They died within ten days from each other in 1973. Photo courtesy of David Douglas Duncan, who was the previous owner of Lump, but when he took him to Pablo picasso, Picasso fell in love and mr. Duncan gave Lump to him. What a gorgeous story.
