Perez, Pets and Paintings

I am a Perez Hilton reader, guilty as charged.  Who doesn’t want to know about Lindsay Lohan’s (fondly dubbed “La Loca” or “Lindsanity” by Perez) latest breakdown or which celebs were spotted this week courtside at the Lakers game?  Whether or not you are interested in all of the celebrity gossip, you have to check out the animal portraiture that I discovered on Perez.  Animal artist Sam Charles Hodgson painted a portrait back in August of Perez’s adorable labordoodle, Teddy, and I have been meaning to share these remarkable works of art with MG.

This is not your traditional animal artwork.  They are so beautiful and tasteful, and not at all what animal artwork too often winds up being…downright creepy.  Rather, Hodgson’s contemporary take infuses the work with bright colors and an almost pop-art quality.  As the owner of two beloved dogs, I would love to have my “girls” immortalized by Sam Charles Hodgson! Check out some of Hodgson’s work below and let me know what you think.

I cannot STANDDDD Perez, I seriously just think he is the absolute worst. BUT I can’t seem to stop checking his site because of little gems like this! And the latest gossip of course. Thanks for posting this, I would much rather read Material Girls than Perez!

Love the artwork, such a cool modern take on animal portraits. My dog “Honey” is ready to pose for one any day!

Thanks for posting this, I love seeing other artists’ works of animals! I paint pet portraits in OKC as Redheaded Dog Art Studio. I do a lot of work with the Central Oklahoma Humane Society as well as a few other animal welfare organizations locally.
Thanks again for sharing the work of Mr. Hodgsdon, he’s a terrific artist. :o )

Love it! The dalmatians are adorable! Hope you don’t mind, I quoted y’all on my art blog.

Hey Tiffany English,
How can I help with your Oklahoma Humane Society?
I have a full plate of dogs (a pair of gorgeous Wheaten Terriers) but appreciate your efforts!

Julie,
I just added your blog to my bookmarked favorites. Love the Jeff Koons exhibit at Versailles! I am with you- would have loved to see.
Best,
