Pop Art Goober

Merv was in a pensive and contemplative mood today, and didn't know if he really wanted to let anyone see the other two portraits he did of me. He says they're not really done yet, and he's a little touchy about any feedback he might get.






Eventually, Merv relented. Here are the two other portraits he did. They are both reminiscent of Andy Warhol. I say, "if it was good enough for Marilyn Monroe and Mao, it's good enough for me!"






This next one is my FAVORITE! I'm thinking of using it as my official presidential portrait to hang in the Museum National de GooberStan .





What do you think? Do I look presidential?


Goob love,
Stanley

Hey Stanny my love...
That Merv...so talented!!! I do like your presidential portrait...it says dignified, but not too dignified!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

P(ee)S - is your girl done with that Hairy book yet? My Mom isn't and I fear it will last a long time. Did you see how big that book was! Jeessh!!! She's going slow..says she's been busy. I'm really worried this thing will be in my life a lot longer than I was hoping!

Maggie said...

Oh my gosh! You look like one of those black Airedales from the Southwest!
Hey Stanley, Mitch and I had our ice cream cone tonight and mom's got our pictures all set to send to the Airechicks! We still think yours is the best!

Love ya lots,

You look very presidential, Stanley. I really like the pretty colors of the pictures.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I missed you, Stanley.

My mom has some pictures of me when I was a puplet. I'll try to get her to send you some.

I have a question. Is that a cat that I saw at the top of your blog entry or am I hallucinating? Sometimes I get confused.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Your friend Kooby

Stanley my Sweet Goober Love,
Is ther no end to Merv's talent..my Mommi says she's thwoeing away her paint bwushes..he's just too much competition..absolutely pawsome..artists can be touchy about their work, but when you have the pawfect subject, well there's no way you can fail...
I think you should blow it up to immense size and put it in the palace, also on your official postal stamps...beets any pwesent , former or footur president we've had
smoochie kisses, sigh...
you fb and MoC, Asta

Merv does great art work. He should sell it for millions. You are very handsome. I bet if you were the President things would be done in a different manner.

Oh, wow! Merv is one great artist! Those are fantastic portraits. You must be proud of your kitty friend, Stanley! But don't trust Merv too much... he's a cat.

Hey Stanley:

Merv does GREAT work - the critics are just jealous of his talent

You look marvelous !!! Very Presidential....

rpm said...

Stanny, thank you for your sweet words about our loss of our ChiChi and Tiny. Your words are so true about how much you little guys make the biggest impact on every minute of our days. I miss so many things that I was just so used to about them. It seems like there is something every day I realize I miss about them.

You sure are a good-looking guy!

Huskee Boy said...
