Below is an image of Cajun artist George Rodrique's famous Blue Dog which appears in many of his paintings. Blue Dog always brings a smile to my face. I thought it might be fun to make a little critter based on Blue Dog's silhouette.
Here is my version. This took a long time to finish. I've got a stiff neck and sore fingers from all that stitching. Does it looks like a dog? I don't think so. More like a gargoyle type of creature, but so what? The body is woven with torn cotton strips - click on the picture for a better view.
What I love about this is the marble effect on the face. I painted it on the wrong side of one of cottons I used for the body.
