This portrait in oils of Miles the pug was painted by Nancy Medina. She's donated it to the Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue group to use on the cover of a fund-raising cookbook.
Nancy Medina of Flower Mound, Texas, has three pugs of her own, and has donated this gorgeous painting to the Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue group, one of the largest pug rescues in the nation. The group is making a cookbook to use as a fund-raiser, and Nancy's painting will grace the cover.
Here's what she writes:
"The Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue is one of the largest pug rescues in the nation. They are currently bringing in approximately five to 10 pugs a week, and are very fortunate to have a number of dedicated volunteers and foster families that help us in that effort. DFW Pug Rescue is a completely unpaid volunteer workforce, and takes in all pugs regardless of age or medical condition. You can read more about DFW Pug Rescue on its web site at www.dfwpugs.com or on our blog at www.dallaspugrescue.blogspot.
Nancy makes luscious paintings, not only of pugs, but also of flowers and gardens and landscapes. You can see her work at www.nancymedinaart.blogspot.
