the Lost Dogs are born.....


I really enjoyed making the postage stamp head Artist Trading Cards a week or so back – I fancy making a few more - but in the meantime I came across these two Polish cat head stamps which are a little too large for ATCs, and thought they might work better on small canvasses

So here you go – they are on 5” x 7” canvas board, the backgrounds are a combination of spraypaints and gelli-printed acrylics – and the cat bodies were painted with acrylics and edged with water soluble graphite

I think they work well together as a pair, but whether they stay together or end up in separate homes depends on how eagle-eyed the finder(s) are – as these two canvasses are being Free Art Friday’d next week :)   Happy hunting, Swindonites!


**edited a week later to add two more :


These two are currently on the wall at Gallery 87 in Bristol - the gallery owner has bagsied the cat :)  but the dog is waiting for someone to take a closer look at which point they will be gifted him, Free Art Friday stylee

I've come up with a name for these little critters, the Lost Dogs (and yes, I know so far 75% of them are cats :) )

You can follow their antics on their own Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/TheLostDogsArt

Oh wow, those are really cool! I love what you did with the stamps and how you incorporated them into your canvases. Thank you too for joining in the SOC again this year - I'm looking froward to Monday! xoxo
