These chihuahua magnets are great gifts for Chihuahua owners
The basis for my Chihuahua is this engraving of Abigail Adams. I gave the little pup a different hat, but I liked the composition of this portrait, with the pretty outfit, the muff, the curtain, and the landscape in the background. The engraving was done by H.S. Sadd. He used a painting by John Singleton Copely as a model for the engraving. And so the tradition continues, re-imagining portraits of the masters, though now the subject is now completely unrecognizable.
Here’s a story about a different chihuahua gift idea someone had. If you’re a fan of the Real Housewives of New York City, you probably remember Jill Zarin and “Ginja”, her beloved Chihuahua. I didn’t know Ginger, and I never once watched that show, but I was commissioned to paint her. Jill was presented with the painting on a birthday. I hear tell that Ginger was a bit of a prima dona, so this outfit was a good match for her.
This 3×4″, 30 mil magnet is hand made by me. I make and send my magnets quickly by way of USPS, no tracking. You’ll love the packaging; it’s great for gift giving. In fact, you can have me ship directly to your giftee. Ask me to write a gift message, too. The recipient will be so thrilled and surprised to receive this… who expects an historical-style, dignified, old world portrait with their favorite critter as the subject? It’s a mood booster for sure.
