Songs stuck in my head

Since the art of the mix tape is lost to us all...

Dog Phone Art

Cell phone photos are rarely great works of art, but there is something very reminiscent of English drawing room pets portraits in how these came out.

Perhaps my artist friends (Susan, Pahl, Catherine, Michael, Dawn etc) can tell me what painter these vaguely copy.

Céilí is my parent's dog. She was born in Ireland, a "timpiste" - an accident, which is what I wanted to call her - an unintentional mating of a West Highland terrier and something else. My father and I brought her to the US when she could just fit in my hand. Happy accident she is, indeed.
