Debbie Kendall knows a thing or two about canine wisdom; in fact, some might say she is an expert in enlightened hounds. Debbie is a painter from the heart and an artist with a wag in every brush stroke.
I am very paw-ticular when it comes to the art work that graces my home. I see a LOT of dog prints (and not just the window art kind), paintings, and photographs in my line of work, and the Enlightened Hound’s Canine Wisdom prints stopped me in my tracks. I received a complimentary print from Debbie Kendall all the way from the United Kingdom. As a gift, a family member had it matted and framed for me and it now graces the entrance to my office.
What makes these Canine Wisdom prints so special? Debbie created the prints using authentic fonts from original posters of the Wild West and U.S. Civil War era. She hand-carved the letters onto printing plates and then put the posters through a special process using traditional linseed oil inks, using hand-mixed colours, inspired by the American Colonial era.
The colors are rich, the stock of the paper is fibrous, and the slightly distressed lettering is a mesh of vintage meets modernity in its style and appearance. Each print is signed and editioned in sets of 260, with each edition using a different color combination.
Prints available are:
Print No.1 “Start Each Day with a Wagging Tail”
Print No.2 “If What You Want Lies Buried…”
Print No.3 “Run To Greet Loved Ones…”
Print No.4 “Explore New Paths…”
Print No.5 “Live Simply…”
Debbie ships internationally via her web shop, her prices are reasonable, the prints are adequately sized, and I felt like the print was custom made for me. They are also available as greeting cards.
