From time to time a book crosses our desk so that we can sit up and enjoy the pure delicacy of its contents. That’s exactly what a new collection of pocket-sized dog portraits by artist Sally Muir has done. One dog a day by Sally Muir (HarperCollins) shows 365 charming portraits of Muir’s favorite four-legged friends, which can be found on the artist’s popular Facebook page “Dog a Day”.
Sally Muir debuted on Facebook in 2013 with her project “Dog a Day”: “My name is Sally Muir and this is a new gallery where I will add a dog drawing / painting every day, resulting in a huge 365 day dog festival leads.” The world soon fell in love with these beautiful portraits depicted on a variety of media – from loosely edited sketches, prints, and charcoal drawings to oil paintings and lithographs. The work of art is continuously accompanied by short anecdotes that reflect the dogs’ silly, loyal and spunky dispositions.
We found One dog a day charming and irresistible and recommend this adorable collection to anyone looking for an artful Mother’s Day gift.
