Blue Dog


When I was in college, my roommate and I decided to paint our apartment a bright blue. We bought the paint at the local hardware store, two hippies in a conservative Vermont town. We didn't get the lid on the paint well, and leaving the store my dog, Parker, ran up to us - tail wagging, body wiggling and curling up - and I tripped and spilled the paint all over my black dog. For weeks all of the local farmers would stop me and ask "Why'd you paint your dog blue?".

what acool story. really had to laugh about the farmer´s remark. :)
the drawing is very nice - almost looks like a stamp.

Thanks K - and yes, it's a transfer but not a stamp. I love transfers and will do them whenever I can!
