Patchwork Pound Puppy Puzzle 1 for P.A.W.S.
5″ x 7″ Acrylic on Wooden Puzzle
When asked to donate something for P.A.W.S. (Progressive Animal Welfare Society) by the SE Oklahoma Assoc. of Realtors, I knew it had to be pound puppies. I painted three of them, which I’ll show you over the next few days. I think they’ll be best auctioned off as a set. They were fun to do, until it came to separating the pieces. I had to slice the acrylic apart with an Xacto blade, then do a little trimming and sanding of the individual pieces, because the wood had swollen a bit. All in all, I am pleased with them and hope they do well at their auction.
Antoine De Saint-Exupery wrote one of my favorite books of all time. If you want to read something that will change your perspective on life, read “The Little Prince“. It’s a children’s book, written in 1943 and eventually translated into a bunch of different languages. I have bought many copies over the years and given them as gifts. I think I was 17 the first time I read it and 50, the last time.
