yes, he is.
I had this in a local art show last month, and thankfully, he was not adopted by anyone and has come home to mama. I had such a fun time making this piece. I had found the aluminum lunch box months ago and
knew it would be a perfect find for some future art assemblage.
woof... here he is.
His head is made from an old bird feeder that I had bought for my dad years ago. It had fallen apart and
my father saved it in his collection of stuff. I inherited back when Dad passed, and finally found
a perfect use for it. The dog's ears are shoe tongues that I cut out of a pair of men's dress shoes.
The eyes are bottle caps attached by large pop rivets. When I was riveting them on, I was holding my breath and praying that I wouldn't crack the wook with the pressure of the rivet gun. PHEW!!! No cracks.
Initially, I thought I would create a stand for him but he sits nicely on his belly and appears to be leaping
with JOY! And now I am happy he is perched playfully here at home. Sometimes it's nice to live with your creations. He makes me smile!
HAPPY SMILES TO YOU.... TA
