Dogs are Miracles Canvas

I started this piece with an old hymn page. I then sprayed ink on it. I then painted with cracke paint using a mask. I pealed back a layer of that paint. Then, I added the bingo sheet and made sure to keep the word "games" on it. I liked to think about the child and the dog playing games together...even the butterfly seemed to want to join in their fun. I added the vintage trading card and then realized I wanted to added two thoughts. That dogs are miracles. The relationship between the dog and the child is profound. Then, I wanted to express what a miracle dogs really are. Thus, the title done with a dymo label.

 

As soon as I listed this piece for sale a lovely friend bought it. It touched her heart because her Buddy looked just like the dog in the photo and he had recently died.
