Dogs by Jon Swihart

Dogs by Jon Swihart.

I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know the work of painter Jon Swihart. Daniel commissioned Jon to paint our Italian Greyhounds, Giacometti and Cody, and yesterday we had a little stop-in party for friends to meet Jon, and see the painting and the dogs in person. (Jon told me that he has a group of painters that he works with, and when they work together, they often listen to my music. Very cool!)

It was a great time had by all. Daniel made home-made mojitos, there was good cheese and fruit. The most amusing quote of the afternoon was from interior designer, Vincent Jacquard, who, before arriving, had been chatting with a colleague in New York.

Vincent: I’m going to an unveiling of a dog painting in Hollywood.

Friend: That is the most goddammed homosexual thing I’ve ever heard of in my life.

I roared, but was ultimately happy to be doing something so, so, homosexual-like.

But seriously, check out Jon’s work: this is a major painter. You will be amazed. (Daniel designed the website by the way.)
