My Dog Blue



My Dog Blue
5" x 5" 
plaque

No, I don't own a dog ( or any pet, for that matter) but just about everyone I know does. The main illustration for this piece is a wine label from  Chateau Morrisette. A great winery listed in the 1,000 places to visit book. We stopped there for a wonderful lunch on the Blue Ridge Parkway last spring and heard the story about how their wine sales were lagging. Then they changed the name of their signature wine to honor their dog that had died and sales tripled. Of course I had to buy a bottle of the white and the red and then saved the label for a future art piece and this is the result.

Sweet, the piece and the sentiment.
