Pawtraits. Artist celebrity sale for dogs home.
A YOUNG artist with a penchant for pooches has produced a collection of portraits of dogs of the rich and famous, which will be sold for charity on Sunday.
Cindy Lass, from St John’s Wood, has spent the past 10 months immortalising on canvas the pets of celebrities including Elton John, George Michael, Geri Halliwell and Uri Geller.
The 22 paintings will go on sale for £2,500 apiece at her exhibition of “Celebrity Pawtraits,” in aid of Battersea Dogs Home.
Ms Lass hit upon the idea in September, after reading about the large number of animals being accommodated at the home.
“Up against time,” the portraits were created from photographs supplied by the stars.
Nevertheless, she did get to meet the long-haired chihuahua of Normandie Keith, who the artistclaimes bears an uncanny likeness to its blond owner . ” An immaculate yellow shih-tzu it has a placeto stay in the country,” Ms Lass remarked.
The “30-ish” artist said that one of her favourite exhibits featured Uri Geller’s three dogs – Jon Jon, Chico and Medina. “People say the painting is the best one and that they are curiously drawn to it,” she told the JC. A possible incentive for the purchaser of this portrait is an invitation to tea at chez Geller.
On a personal note, Ms Lass is dedicating the exhibition to her late Yorkshire terrier, Cookie. “She was minute, the sise of my handbag. I used to take her everywhere and have never got over her death.”
Though the proceeds are going towards the Battersea home’s expanding cattery, the artist stressed: “Dogs are very special, spiritual creatures and should be looked after.”
The St John’s Wood Synagogue member believed that her Jewish identity had strongly influenced her work, explaining: “I love the traditions and the spirituality of Judaism, and I feel that if you have something which could help other people, you should share it.
“But I am no goody-two-shoes, and I enjoy life to the full.”

And just as Mr D’Ulisse was about to give up hope Dudley turned up.
A man known only as Dave from Sevenoaks, inKent returned Dudley on Saterday after buying him
from some travellers in Streatham.
He had paid £300 but became suspicious whe there were no papers for the pedigree pup.
A friend of his showed Dave the SLPs article an he also saw some of the posters Mr D’Ulisse ha put up.
Mr D’Ulisse, of Battersea Park Road. said: “Im over the moon, I was begjnning to think I woul never get him back
“If it wasn’t for the piece in the paper, he may never have been returned and you never know maybe Uri Geller had an effect too.”
Mr D’Ulisse gave the mystery man £450 as a reward.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
