Basenji Art

We were at Starbucks and saw this lady doing a pet portrait in the corner, so we comissioned a drawing of our dogs. She came out met the dogs, shot a roll of film them and did this- She called it "the whisper"

Found this in a google image search- not sure where it's from or who did it.

Anyone else have some basenji art to post?

This is B-E-A-U-tiful! You don't happen to have the lady's name, number, website, do you?

I can check if my wife still has it & PM you. She spent about an hour meeting the dogs. She said she likes to get to know the dogs first. The dogs loved her. She shot a roll of high speed film of them, with some really great shots. sitting on the ground taking pictures of them. she's an older woman who was head of the county art league here. She's very good. I don't think she has a web site as she does it mostly for fun, she loves animals.

The Whisper was the two dogs standing on a rock over looking the pond

See the large rock under the clump of grass?

that is where the picture was taken from. They were both standing together on that rock. He looked like he was gentley telling her a secret. She probably just had dirty ears!

That's really very cool, I like it a lot!

Thanks for sharing with us.๐Ÿ†’

Too cute!!

Jordan-that bath tub one is such a lie! LOL LOL ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My Bs would not be caught dead in a bath tub full of water!! :eek:

I Thought The Same Thing As Soon As I Saw The Pic..lol

I was at an Italian resteraunt in Chicago andf they had a really old poster of a Basenji in bed upside down in front of a fan

Great drawing. A few years ago I wanted to find someone to do a portrait of my husband's elder B/W basenji. It was awhile before I found someone to do it and also was reasonably priced. It was done in pen and ink, since oreo was black and white it was perfect. It was truly a exact image of him done by seeing pictures of him. It was a wonderful christmas gift for my husband. although his daughter laughs that Oreo's picture is bigger than the one he had drawn of her when she was a child. Oreo has now passed on and when I had this done I had no idea how much comfort it would provide years later. It still brings a smile and fond memories of his special buddy every time he looks at it.


Not the best picture, but this statue is pretty cool and I just had to have it.

This is some of my personal art work:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Andrea may remember this one.:D ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
I wanted Andrea(Quercus) to post a picture of her Af pup. Well it was taking longer than I was willing to wait. I sent Andrea a note and told her I was going to post this picture on the forum and tell everyone that this might be what Andrea's pup looks like.:D
Andrea had a giggle and told me my art wasn't badโ€ฆ...so here ya go!:D ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Love the statueโ€ฆthe stick figure is quite nice - I myself am a MagnaDoodle "arteeest"....LOL!
Seriously though...great work!

That Casting is amazing!

I would of bought that in a heart beat as well. I have been to a lot of African Art dealers/stores and they never have basenji's or even Cape Hunting Dogs.
