Java Jones and Little Man: Barking Cloth Quilt

Posted by Picasa
This pet portrait was commissioned as a special birthday gift by a client for his wife. Now there's a man who thinks ahead! He provided me with tons of photos and a detailed description of the dogs' personalities. Java, a sweet Chocolate Lab and her companion Mason, a playful Great Dane, are shown at their favorite beach as they take a break from playing in the surf. I photographed shells and transferred them to fabric for the border, and tried to get the feeling of the dunes and beach grasses with the quilting and beading in the background. I hope the birthday girl enjoys her special gift.

How could she not love it. I do, and they're not my dogs.
