It’s Time To Go Out

It’s time to go out

Usually it is my dog that reminds me  to get up, and move about, and head out for a walk.  I guess you could say they are my handlers.  Always there letting me know that someone is at the door,or  its time to eat, take a break or just pay them some attention.

I guess we all need that kind of urging.  It allows me to reconnect with outside world.  To refresh my imagination.  It never falls just when I think “having to move” is a great waist of time, up pops a new idea.  A fresh way to see an old familiar action.  Such as walking my dog.

This little “Wired Haired Terrier” was created in watercolor using 140b cold pressed paper (Cotman watercolor paper).   I used Winsor and Newton watercolors.  I worked primarily with a brown pallet except for the leash.  That just had to be a bright splash of red.  After completing it I scanned it in at 300 dpi.  I will combine it with other elements for use as a pattern pattern. Perhaps a ball, or fire hydrant, or some other elements that are relevant to walking or playing with man’s best friend.

Oh I once had a dog that loved squeaky toys.  It was a duck, that was his favorite. He loved that thing.  Oh well I digress, but you get the idea.  Relevant elements.


 Below are just two different ideas of patterns. It looks a bit complicated but not really.  Just a seed set straight across with the same design only smaller set behind.

Here is an example of a simple pattern set straight across.

Both of these are offered on my Spoonflower account.   I Think  this pattern  would be great purchased in the Eco canvas and then used for a small little dog bed,  or in cotton for quilting, well you get the idea.
