Playing Dirty

Painting Everything Red
oil on canvas, 8" x 8"

What is Hatrick doing with my paintbrush? Oh no, it is loaded with red paint! Maybe I can get it before -

AHHHHH, Hattie! Stop! You are making a mess!!

Oh well, if this becomes the label for the Mutt Lynch Winery’s 2011 limited edition wine, maybe I won’t mind the new decor.

Hatrick and I have entered this image in the 3rd Annual Dog Art Wine Label Contest hosted by Dog Art Today and Mutt Lynch Winery. If this painting is chosen, Hattie’s face will appear on 500 bottles of a very special blend the winery sells to benefit their local Healdsburg Animal Shelter.

This year, the contest has a theme - “Naughty”. Think Hattie is naughty enough to win?

You can VOTE for this painting at Dog Art Today!

Of course, enjoy the other 100 entries once you have clicked the link. At the  top and bottom of the page there are "Click Here to vote" links- the site tells you what to do.

Painting Everything Red is number 80.

Voting is open from today, May 16th, to next Saturday, May 21st at midnight  PST. The rule is “One computer, one vote”, so if you really love it you could find extra computers and vote multiple times if you want....

The prize includes a CASE of the wine. Maybe the winner of this contest would have a dog art party and serve some of this wine when it is ready to drink?

I guess there is only one way to find out, folks:

If you like the painting, vote for it at Dog Art Today!!

wow that is really good. I think you captured Hattie's naughtiness very well. Kindle is hoping her friend gets to be famous. We're going to vote!

Hannah Phelps said...

Thanks Louise! If Hattie wins, she will share her wine with Kindle :)

Hannah--this is a wonderful portrait of your Hattie and it could grace any wine bottle with style. the red is gorgeous and makes Hattie's face pop. It's funny--you're Hannah with Hattie the dog and I'm Hannah with Hallie the cat!

I love fun coincidences like this:)

Hannah Phelps said...

That is a cool coincidence, Hannah!

The follow-up to this story is that Hattie and I didn't win...oh well, we had a good time anyway.
