Charlie Dog Paw Print Watercolor Cobalt Teal Blue Prussian Blue and Quinacridone Gold
Remember me? Your best buddy and pal, Charlie?
It’s been a while, but Mom finally gave in to let me get a word (and a paw print) in edge wise!
Since July is #WorldWatercolorMonth, Mom said I had to contribute a watercolor painting if I was going to do a guest blog post.
I thought about painting a juicy, mouth-watering rack of ribs, but hey… I’d rather EAT those!
I also thought about painting a kitty, like my friend Sebastian, but that is a little challenging without opposable thumbs.
I considered painting one of my favorite sticks to chew on or my blue ball or a fun, squeaky donut….
But after all this thinking, I was starting to get awfully sleepy…
What could I paint?
I must say I’m getting a little tired of all the “pink stuff” going on around here by the way…..
Don’t get me wrong – I get it that Mom is super excited about becoming a Grandma soon, and since it’s a girl, she’s really kinda being googly ga ga because she’s the only girl around our house…. but seriously….. enough with the pink, the coral, the pastel…. GAG!
So I finally decided to do a little abstract piece in Cobalt Teal Blue, Prussian Blue, and one of Mom’s and my favorites, Quinacridone Gold.
For my piece, I simply dipped my paw in water to achieve a wet-on-wet watercolor technique. I then
spit dropped the paint in to let it flow and drip and create its own watercolor magic.
Painting is really fun!
As you may already know, I am adopted. I was lost until Mom and Dad and my new family found me. I am so fortunate they helped me.
And I want to help KIDS! Kids who want to create art, but aren’t able because they don’t have paint or paper or the resources they need. That’s really what #WorldWatercolorMonth is all about you know… It’s about raising awareness for underprivileged kids who really want to create art or learn about art or have the opportunity to choose art.
Mom and I hope you will consider donating to the Zebra Foundation in any small or large way. The wonderful people at The Zebra Foundation understand the importance of art and creativity in the world.
Join us in celebrating by donating watercolor supplies to support underprivileged young artists worldwide! With your help, we can provide much needed support for kids in need. Just like I was 9 months ago – a dog in need – given a new life!
