Some of you may recognize the gorgeous and talented Pugsy artwork on the cool, new LVSportsBiz.com Pugsy bicycle jersey unveiled yesterday.
I was so stoked to see Malanda Schmitz's artwork on a bicycle jersey that I donned the jersey for a bike ride through Red Rock Canyon this morning.
That's the work of my talented friend and artist, Malanda, who lives with her hockey-savvy husband Karl in Safety Harbor, Fla. and who has a downtown St. Petersburg art studio.
When I say Malanda is gifted, I literally mean it because this generous woman gave me a gift I will treasure forever -- a beautiful and expressive portrait of Pugsy.
Don't take my word about Malanda's immense artistic talent and giving spirit -- look for yourself. Check her beautiful artwork on her website.
I strongly recommend Malanda for your dog portraits or any wildlife and outdoors paintings. See her beautiful work on Facebook: Malanda Art of Life
And thank you Dave Manchester of Athlos Sports for putting together Malanda's great artwork into a bike jersey I will cherish forever. More on Dave and Athlos in a different post.
