Calling all …


… art lovers!  I’m sure you’ve experienced this at one time or another.  You go into a store (whether brick-n-mortar or online) and find all these really cool breed-related items.  Labs, Tzus, Pugs, Yorkies, German Shepherd Dogs, etc. are all represented … everything but an Apso!  I even encounter this when shopping the myriad of vendors at the dog shows — very little in the way of my chosen breed. 

Every year at our National Specialty (the American Lhasa Apso Club or “ALAC”), special trophies are obtained for the winners.  These typically are Best of Breed (BOB), Best of Opposite Sex to Best of Breed (BOS), Best of Winners (BW) (from the class dogs), Winners Dog (WD) and Winners Bitch (WB).  This year’s trophies are spectacular … original oils by artist Karen McClelland.  An exhibitor, she understands the nuances and anatomy of the canine, resulting in true-to-life work.   Scroll down her Non-Sporting page to view the three Apso prints she’s offering as limited edition giclees on canvas!  This has to be my favorite …

Karen will also do commission work for those wishing to memoralize a beloved pet.  Additionally, she does quite a bit of equine art which can be seen on her blog … Karen McClelland Blog.

Hmmmm, I think I have a wall that needs a little “something” …
