Libra Izze!

Izze's not really a Libra, but I thought she'd be a great model for my newest personal project--Astrology Doggies! Years ago I got really interested in creating astrology birth charts for friends (before computers!). I'm really intrigued by all of the symbolism and mythology surrounding the astrological signs and it provides great visual material for art.

Astrological iconography is incredibly fascinating. This sounds like an intersting project.

Julie, this piece is amazing! I love Izze! Jen e-mailed me to let me know what you're up to with these paintings and I'm psyched for you. I can't wait to see them all. If you need any references, we have 5 beautiful dogs and two awesome cats! Our dog Benny is a beagle/basset hound mix and he has tons of character. ;-) Just let me know! Miss you guys!

Hi Julie,

Absolutely gorgeous! Doing a whole series of Astrological dogs and cats would be spectacular! The archetypal elements of symbolic and tangible identity are very cool things to depict. I can't wait to see more.

All the best,
Howard

Wow! Thanks for all the great enthusiasm from you guys about this project! It's one of those things that just feels so right--every day I can't wait to get to work on it, so I know it's right!
