Cockroach question

Posted

Every once and awhile people email questions to me and my response bounces back. The latest returned email was in regards to how detailed the custom cockroach, flatdogs and new curled hound sculptures are. Thought I’d answer it here in case others had that question too. I have an order form for the cockroaches with […]

Almost Home for Hounds update

Couple of quick notes about the Almost Home for Hounds projects. #1 I’ve donated the Peaceful Repose sculpture (pictured above) to Almost Home for Hounds. Sue Ross of Silk Road Collars is raffling it off– you can see more photos and get details of the raffle at Sue’s fundraising page. #2 The Dreaming of Home […]

Garden of Earthly Delights

Posted

Thought that I’d add a photo of what my work table looks like this morning. Kind of reminds me of Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights minus many key elements of course…

Cockroaches and Flatdogs

Posted

If you are a non-Greyhound person you might not understand. “Cockroach” is what a Greyhound’s sleeping style is called. I think it comes from Dead Cockroach (and from what I hear, the Whippet people call the same pose “Dead Bug”). Anyway, I occasionally make Greyhound “Cockroaches”– those are sculptures of Greyhounds asleep with their legs […]

Espresso

Posted

It was a mistake. I can see that now. About six months ago I quit drinking coffee and unhinged myself from my caffeine addiction. A difficult but good thing to do. I’ve had a few relapses– traveling to the Greyhounds in Gettysburg event, a couple difficult mornings, once where I mixed the decaf with real– […]

To work

Posted

Well, first I should thank all of you who have called and emailed about Sterling’s death. It is very comforting to hear from others who understand. It is still hard for me to believe that he’s gone. So I have thrown myself into work. There are two new Saluki sculptures in the drying cabinet. I […]

Terrible day.

Posted

Sterling died today. Just like that. He slipped. I picked him up, tried to calm him and just as I thought everything would be okay he inhaled deeply and collapsed. And then he was gone. Brownie, String, Beandog, the Bean, Buddy, Sterling. My first Greyhound. My heart dog. My Velcro dog. My boy. Changed my […]

Apollo Greyhound #9

Posted

Apollo’s ninth birthday today. (Apollo is one the Greyhounds that live here with us) Hard to believe he is nine already. Up until a few weeks ago he was the “young one” of the pack. Now he’s keeping up with the new “young one,” Winchester. No birthday cakes or party hats here. Apollo celebrated the […]

First Post

Posted

Okay. Let’s see how this works…. I have decided to start a blog as a way to document the daily (or semi-daily) goings on here in the studio. Hopefully that will include a good amount of Art making– and a probably a lot about the Greyhounds who live here. Who am I? Sarah Regan Snavely, […]
