Three Little Dogs

I gave a lecture on my work last week at Bowling Green State University, Ohio.
I was given a tour of the art department which is super nice and has lots of great facilities (way more than we ever had at school)!
Thanks to everyone there for making me feel so very welcome.

In my presentation I thought it would be fun to show one or two (really old) pieces to the students from my time at art school, this piece was illustrating a story I had read about a woman who loved little lap dogs and liked to dress them up and treat them like little children.

I hope you all had a fun weekend (and/or delicious Thanksgiving - mine certainly was!!!).

Wowwww!!!! this is awesome ... i really love how you add a touch of colors to show of its clothes since the dogs are in black and white. It really brings out the story in it. Am sure the students would have learnt a lot from you :D
By the way, a very happy thanksgiving to you too!
