The pug and Mom, art by Margherita Arrighi

Original –  Mixed Media art 40 x 70.

The little girl with big eyes and blonde hair hugs her pug and thanks him for the joy of every day.


The JOY because it is the biggest emotion that my pugs Rugo and Tita gave to me. Only with positive vibrations we fulfill our desires and for this we should always thank our four-legged friends too. On the painting I put on an old mine, a vest full of beads, and a diamond like a piercing near the mouth.

My Pug Tita was not eight years old yet (16/12/2009 – 03/09/2017) who decided to leave me and go to Heaven near her grandmother Luigina. Now She is waiting for me and I know that one day we’ll meet again… but not yet…

In the photos below she was in the last days frightened and with low ears because of unexpected and violent pains.

Below  with my mom in March 2013 when she was still happy and chubby and even mom was still happy and joyful. We were looking for a solution to sleep in bed together without her dog games, but then I never put on that dress and I always left her free.

Below whimsicalTita, she was always ready to get angry with someone…: someone who passed in front of the gate, the dog on television or even…nothing. Beware people, because she has now become almighty and can not withstand people who behave badly…! 😉 IMG_3866-min

SEI LA MIA GIOIA (You are my Joy) Mixed Media 40 x 70

This little girl embraces a pug and blesses the beautiful sensations and inner vibrations thanks to her sweet dog. Only with positive vibrations we achieve our desires and for this reason we should always thank our four-legged friends.

This is a picture was for joy that my beloved Tita and Rugo send to me. On the picture I put my old coat-rack full of beads glitters and a piercing near my mouth. There is a message on the necklace that says:

For you I was

your mom

for me You will always be my


The ascension in the sky of my loved Pug Tita was something immense that also scrap my love just because I could not defend her as I always did. I did not understand why all this evil had hurt her and so suddenly..! Then today, listening to this video I understand

The vet had understood her liver was compromised, but curing it has pushed her even further towards the end. Ohhh my love forgive me, I should have known for years that you only just needed Peace and Serenity. Droplets that relieve your chronic mental stress.

Perhaps it is just as Louise says, liver is something that dampen moods, in addition to junk food, it saves us from agitation and anger, but if it is too stressed, it slowly slams.

You  always ready to fight, you are always ready to  complain … slowly you were extinguishing…my love. In fact your brain occasionally gave you shocks and looked like epileptic attacks..! You just needed calming…! But why did not I find it out years ago…? I would save you….!!!!! 🙁

You and Rugo, with only love, have been able to give me Joy and Strength to believe in myself and struggle for a dream. Through your eyes I discovered paradise and a world of possibilities. Thanks to you my loved Tita, now I understand another very important thing:

To be well I must be calm

take a step at a time

creating Joy.

For now I hug you and I invite you to join me at My Mail because I would like to give you your portrait soon by attending a contest on Instagram.

riposa in pace amore mio e scusa se non ho capito in tempo il tuo grido di aiuto…TI AMO….!!!!!

Sono una pittrice sognatrice, appassionata della corrente artistica Mixed Media ed influenzata da questa, ho trovato nelle mie opere un equilibrio tra la pittura e l'applicazione di elementi che si trovano nella nostra vita quotidiana. Raffiguro ciò che mi appartiene, come per esempio i miei due carlini Rugo, Tita che nelle opere vengono rappresentati quasi in modo giocoso, le figure femminili appaiono quasi elementari a chi le osserva, ma forse ad una più approfondita osservazione ci si può accorgere della loro difficile esecuzione. Esse fuoriescono dalla tela trascinando ciò che mi circonda, le parole , le immagini, la carta , i fregi e tutto quello che inserisco nello sfondo, tutto porta a loro, ai loro occhi dolcissimi, che trasmettono serenità a chi le osserva e che danno alle opere quell' armonia dolce e gentile. Nelle opere cerco di rappresentare me stessa non in senso figurativo ma racconto con i miei messaggi, i miei progressi e tutto quello che ho imparato nel mio percorso creativo. Racconto tutto quello in cui credo, sono messaggi che in questo modo acquistano forza e divertano ferme come rocce. Chiunque può leggere quello che vi è scritto sopra ed interpretare come vuole il loro significato, con la speranza è che qualcosa che scrivo vada ad innaffiare pensieri positivi di tante persone! Credo fortemente che a goccia a goccia si può riempire anche il mare!!!!
