FACES OF CHIN, “Foxy” ... Japanese Chin (SuChins Foxy Lady)
Foxy is the 23rd in the series "Faces of Chin"
--from original 16” x 16” Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Foxy was born to be a star in the show ring, however, she had other ideas.  While her breeder, Judith Hinkelman, had dreams of Foxy winning lots of ribbons, Foxy cunningly plotted to escape show life.  Every time she was led into a show ring, Foxy performed all kinds of cute antics and even resorted to inviting the judge to play with her!  After several repeats of such disgraceful behavior, she became TeaHouse Chin #7, the first red and white to live at the TeaHouse.  To her great delight, her new familiy in Alabama was charmed with her antics!

Foxy is the subject of several paintings, however, this is her first formal portrait, and it will help keep memories of this precious girl alive forever for her folks at the TeaHouse:  Martha and Bill Hooks.

The Artist:  Martha Hooks, a Southerner by birth and choice, has always had dogs in her life.  Her memories of going to field trials with her dad as well as time spent in conformation rings with her Long Coat Chihuahuas helped expand her knowledge of canine anatomy, breed traits and personalities.  She paints full time and commissions are accepted, time permitting.  Of course, her favorite subjects wear fur coats year around.
