According to artist Kathrin Burleson, an icon is a window to another reality; a door to the divine. And, what could be more divine than an icon of your dog? Obviously, Burleson's work is influenced by religious iconography, but the whimsy in each piece is influenced by our four-legged friends.

Using a traditional, iconic approach, her paintings are created on a wood pane and gilded with 23 carat gold. She combines age-old techniques with nontraditional imagery (um, dogs), presenting a light-hearted approach to iconography that she says explores not only the mystery of creation, but also the humor in life. All I know is I want one!
