RETIRED CHRISTMAS EDITIONS

 

 


 

Papillons have been a part of my life for almost 20 years.  

I have bred or co-bred more than forty Champions including several specialty winners

and an all breed Best In Show under the "Nanstar" prefix. Our Papillons are part of the family and all live as house dogs. 

While I like all dogs and find many breeds fascinating, the Papillon has a special place in my heart and in my art.

Free To Fly

 

Inspiration : Real Dogs Running

  FREE TO FLY    ( Retired in 2012 )

  The inspiration for this pair of running Papillons is the joy I have in seeing

  my own dogs "flying" about on their daily exercise runs. We have 2.5 acres

  securely fenced for them and mow trails through the wildlife habitat there so

  they can be "Free to Fly" ! 

 

  They ride from the house yard out to the fenced area in a garden cart we

  call the "bus". What fun it is to open the "bus" door and watch them climb

  over each other in their rush to get in. Then I pull them out to the back area

  and open the door to begin the races ! ( See the "Inspiration" photo ) 

 

  Limited editions of 100 each. They are cast in hydrostone and

  measure 5 1/2 inches tall and 7 to 8 inches long. The bases are designed

  to fit together and give the appearance of one sculpture.
