DescriptionAn illustration of my Boxer Paco's personality. We've had a fun but insanely chaotic time becoming best friends. Never a dull moment! Colored pencil on paper. Some interesting aspects of the boxer's personality below.The boxer is the clown of the dog world, they can be playful,stubborn, goofy, courageous, protective and as I said, clownish. Mix all that together with very high intelligence and you have one unique dog personality! If you let them get bored they will sprint through your house, bounce off your walls, tear up your furniture eat your expensive sneakers and anything else you might leave on the floor. Be forewarned, they need a lot of exercise and chew toys are a must! They can be trained of course but you will need to be patient with them because boxer's are naturally stubborn dogs. They might not agree with your house rules at first, but be firm loving and consistent and they will become your best friend! Mine is also highly motivated by food so that is always a great training tool. (This is from my personal experience, I am in no way a professional dog trainer).
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
