For HTK marketing graphic designer Annie Schweiger, inspiration struck in the form of her co-worker's dog, a long-haired Chihuahua named Winston.
"It was my co-worker Mike Scholtz's dog. He has three dogs and Winston's one of the dogs that he brings in almost every day. And I just really wanted to paint his dog, because he's one of my favorites in the office. So I just did it as a fun weekend project," Schweiger said. Schweiger entered her renaissance style portrait, "The Winston," in the Duluth Art Institute's "Annual Membership Exhibition. This year, the People's Choice Award, which recognizes the audience's favorite work out of more than 175 pieces on view, went to Schweiger's acrylic-on-canvas painting. Schweiger called the win "an unexpected but pleasant surprise." "I'm so excited Annie Schweiger was recognized by her peers," said Anne Dugan, executive and artistic director of the DAI. It was just over a weekend when I had nothing else to do, so I was a hermit in my apartment for the two days," Schweiger said. "But I think I'll joint every year now and get a little more involved in the art community," Schweiger said. "It was really cool to see the whole community come out for that event and see all the different artwork people make." Schweiger might have some more painting work to do. "At the exhibition, some people were asking about dog portraits, so I might have to paint a few more. I really like dogs in general, so it's OK," Schweiger said.
