Howdy do, everyone? If you're in the Baltimore area you should definitely check out the Cats & Dogs and Dogs & Cats show at Spur Gallery THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, 6:30-8:30PM. It includes my work along with several other people I know and adore, including a number of my former instructors and schoolmates at MICA. There will also be real, live, and adoptable (caged) cats and (roaming) dogs at the reception, courtesty of BARCS! Plus, 50% of the proceeds from the sale of art will go directly to BARCS to help out more cats and dogs in need.
I created this piece specifically for the show. I don't actually know that much about dogs so I thought it would be fun to learn about some breeds. Since there's, like, a gazillion, I narrowed it down to extant breeds originating in America.
I also included my Cheshire Cat piece and a painting of some cats that I plan on using for a pattern one of these days (you may remember getting a peek at it when I was interviewed by Brown Paper Bag).
