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.
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.
