I have a deep, deep and abiding love for West Highland White Terriers.
Westies are simply awesome.
It is simply a fact.
They are loyal, tenacious, loving and full of heart.
Mark Twain once said, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."
And while it is certainly possible that he wasn't thinking about Westies when he said that, I rather suspect that every (lucky) owner of a Westie KNOWS for a fact that it applies TOTALLY to their little hero.
They are never beaten. They never give in. And if a dog 5 times their size gets in their way they are only too happy to face them down.
Crazy. But soooooooooo gutsy. They make you swell with pride.
The 'family' Westie (my mum and dad have 'custody' currently!) is called 'George' (though I have it in inverted commas because I secretly think that George probably thinks of himself as 'Bond, James Bond', or something similar, because he really is a cool customer).
Anyway, he has been my 'muse' for several of my works of art that you will find on here, so I thought it was about time that 'Westie Art' had its own section for your delight and delectation.
I know that I am not alone in being a Westie Lover, so I thought that some of you fine folk might enjoy seeing some of the art that they have inspired (and, if you fancy having some of it on your walls, then that would be nice as well).
