Paint The States Tour
Join me vicariously as I travel across the USA
painting what inspires me in all 50 states as I go!
I will be living with my Husband Scott,
and 2 dogs Kona and Ollie,
in a class A Thor Motorhome
with my mobile art studio in the back.
I will be posting Youtube videos, updating my Instagram @PaintTheStates, and writing about my travels on my blog at www.Patreon.com/PaintTheStates .
This is Kona, he is a Puggle (half pug, half beagle).
Kona was born on August 30th, 2008. He enjoys looking out windows, long naps, hanging out with kids, and eating treats. When Kona was 4 years old, he was diagnosed as allergic to chicken. This was a very traumatic event in his life, which he is still struggling to accept.
Kona began his long career as a mascot for The Needham Bowlaway in 2008, then The Stoughton Sports Center (which soon became Tiki Bowl), after that he became the model for Trader Joe's signs for dog treats in Hingham, MA. Finally he started his career at Liz Boston Art Studio as a studio dog in 2015. His main duties there were greeting customers, assisting with art classes, studio mascot at Art Parties and Paint Nights, and appearing in all of the group photos. He is excited about the Paint The States Tour and his new little pup Ollie, who he has accepted the role of Father Dog too.
This is Ollie, he is a Puggle (half pug, half beagle). Ollie was born on April 24th, 2020. He enjoys talking with his buttons, and letting us know what's on his mind. he also likes to cuddle, play with his squeaky ball, and eat cookies (Milk Bones). He often asks to watch T.V. with his blanket, and a cookie. His favorite T.V. show is Clifford The Big Red Dog.
This is Ollies first job, but he is very lucky to have a mentor like Kona to show him all of the in's and out's of Mascot life.
