Barkley Von Muttley...Dog about Town!














Howdy Doody Bloglandians! We just finished another doll...er, uh...Dog! and I thought I would pop him on here for a quick look see. His name is as above 'Barkley Von Muttley' and he is indeed a Dog About Town! Hope you can read his little poem that I wrote...kinda explains everything about him...it's his story and he is stickin to it!!


I love doing animals (specially in clothing) ..oh, also bugs (note to self: Need to do another one of those again soon).. anyway, back to dogs in clothing...this little fellow just sorta 'popped' out from no where (you know those dolls...lucking just under the surface and it takes the slightest thing to bring them out)...well, this is he! Actually for a very long time now (5-6 years) I have been kicking around the idea of 'Semi Deranged ' Critters...chickens, rats, rabbits, dogs, cats, birds etc... and one of these 'critters' was 'Deliriously Deranged Dog' that looked strangely enough like Barkley...only with clothing..so this is what popped out...It was quick and fun and feed the artistic soul nicely ...we all need these little morsels every so often.


So Barkley has made me laugh for the last 2 days, and Richard...even our Dog seems to be chuckling under her breath... all good signs! Anything in art that makes you laugh and enjoy...is healthy and rejuvenating.


We are about to pop onto some more serious pieces so this bit of humor i can nibble on for a while.

I am popping Barkley onto EBAY this evening ...not sure at all if he is any ones cup of tea other than my own...but again...a good thing to feed ones own inner being.


Hope you enjoy our little canine critter...and that he brings you smiles enough to nibble for a good long while...


Hugs

He may be more peoples cup of tea than you might think. Besides, humor is always a welcome friend to visit the studio. Great piece Jodi.
