DROOL: What about dogs attracts you to them as subjects for your artwork?
Linny: Plants, food, kids, they’re fine. But, You know how if you stick your face into your dog’s armpits they always smell like popcorn and sunshine? That’s my double rainbow.
DROOL: Which do you prefer: dogs or people, and why?
Linny: I was a bartender in NYC for 14 years. Woof. I prefer dogs.
DROOL: If you had to choose one dog breed to characterize who you are, what breed would it be and why?
Linny: I think I’m a lot like my first dog, Dallas. She was a Catahoula leopard dog. Independent, strong-willed (stubborn), totally content to be alone. Really not into loud noises and sudden movements. Aloof to strangers but really loving and loyal to the people closest. Wait, am I her, or is she me?
DROOL: Anything else you want to share with the dog-loving humans of Earth?
Linny: Adopt don’t shop! And support your local artists.
