This is my daughter Deb standing outside the Stephen Huneck gallery that used to be on the Vineyard. The picture in the window is perfect for her. She is, to put it mildly, obsessed, with a capital Obsession, with her Boykin Spaniel, Chappy.
We surprised her a few months later with a print for her birthday.
Stephen Huneck is a fantastic artist and sculptor, we had the honor of meeting him at a book signing a few years ago and he not only autographed his latest book for us but he…
… drew a sketch of Chappy inside the cover.
We’ve purchased a few of Stephen Huneck’s paintings over the years. I particularly like this one because of its Vineyard theme. Didn’t you always wonder where all the Black Labs on MV came from !
Here are two of his sculptures that have significance for us. Before we had our chocolate brown Boykin Spaniel, represented here by the dog on the left, we had miniature Dachshunds, represented by the dog on the right. I love the corner doxie, he’s definitely a conversation starter.
