Doxie Doodle of the Day 23

Today's Doodle is also up for auction on eBay at this link. I am starting the bidding on this one at $5.99 - testing the waters with different start prices. I hope the color of this watercolor is showing up well on this blog - it is very rich in person, but shows darker on my Cintiq and lighter on my Viewsonic, so I can guess it won't be the same on everyone's monitor. This miniature black and tan Dachshund posing in a freshly carved pumpkin would be a fun thing to gift in a Halloween card for a friend - and costs about the same as a card! A good way to get started with original art. A lot of my day has been devoted to making arrangements to rescue some kitties down the street from me. Their owner was evicted and I think I can help them get new homes, but first they need to be tested for contagious diseases. I think one of them is our cat Pingu's Uncle - he looks just like her sister from our rescued litter last year.

Doxie Doodle of the Day 22 - Up for Bids!

Another Vampire Dachshund - this one hand-painted with watercolors in Art Trading Card/ACEO size (2.5"x3.5") and Now Up for Bids on Ebay with the auction ending Sunday October 11. By day this little wiener dog is a mild-mannered, if stubborn Dachshund. But when the sun goes down and his fangs and claws come out he becomes the mysterious and feared Count Doxula; if you are not careful of this wily weenie he will bite your ankles. Not to worry, though, as he rarely draws blood and prefers to slay squeaky toys. In the works for today I am nearly finished with a black and tan Dachshund in a pumpkin, also for listing on eBay.

Doxie Doodle of the Day 21

Now up for Auction on eBay - this Art Trading Card/ACEO (2.5"x3.5") watercolor freshly painted! A weiner dog costumed in a witch hat and cape waits at the door on Halloween night for treats, looking up hopefully... hopefully it won't have to do any tricks! Auction starts at 9.99 and runs 7 days - ending next Sunday, October 11. I'm also painting a small Doxula today. I hope to do several little paintings this week, so if you want to see anything specific just leave a comment for me!

Count Doxula

As seen in Doxie Doodle of the Day 11 here is the finished art of Count Doxula, the renowned Dachshund Vampire, just in time for Halloweeeeeeenie. His speciality is sinking those fantastic long fangs into an unsuspecting ankle. You can find Doxula on shirts, cards and tiles in his own Doxula Cafe Press Store.
I've been spending a lot of time this week working on my Cafe Press store - renaming and moving sections, organizing the Halloween stores - one just for Dachshund Halloween shirts, cards and gifts, and one for my other Cute Halloween Designs featuring bats, spiders, rats and more on cards and clothes. I hope to do another couple of halloween designs and then it is full speed ahead on Chistmas and Hanukkah.
