FACES OF CHIN, “Heather” ... Japanese Chin
Heather is the 6th in the series "Faces of Chin"
--from original 16” x 16” Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
A tiny force of nature that demands respect from everyone in her realm, Heather can be a silly little imp one minute and a precious princess the next.  Sometimes, she can be stubborn and insistent, with barely audible howls, if she feels neglected in any way.  She does not like to be teased when addressing her subjects.  But it is hard to maintain a seriousness when four pounds of fluffy fury is admonishing someone for a transgression.  In Chin-speak, she is called a “clown face” due to her color markings, however, Heather is a true Japanese Chin Princess and charms everyone she meets!  Heather is served by Elayne Dobbis and Mary Piini in Auburn, Washington.

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.
