It is difficult to find art that revolves around the Border Collie. As my wife and I frequent thrift stores, antique stores and during our trip to Ireland, we discovered that there is much ado about the sheep, but no the sheep dog. I suspect this is due to the sheep are what generate money for the farmer and the dog is simply an overhead expense.
So, for Christmas I was fortunate enough to happen upon a young lady who is a tremendous artist and I showed her a photo of Skyy. She remarked how regal he looked in the photo and I suggested getting a print done of it. The following is a conversation we had:
Artist: That is a really nice photo of Skyy! You know what would make this look awesome? This photo in crayon!
Me: Did you say crayon, as in Crayola Crayon? (I was doubting my decision to inquire to her about doing a portrait of my dog at this point.)
What I was imagining was:
Boy was I wrong! What I received was astounding. I simply do not have words for this portrait, so I wanted to share with you all the fast time action of this awesome artist doing her thing with the Skyy Photo – – -IN CRAYON!!!!!
Let me know what you think! The artist gave her information at the end of the video.
If you are interested, she may be able to do something like this for you! Tell her you saw this video on Skyy.blog!
Car Cruise @ HCR ManorCare North Hills
Check out these post of cool Border Collie art! Share yours by commenting on the posts!
Skyy’s buddies at ManorCare had a car cruise today! We decided to go and check out the event!
How awesome is this….
It was a beautiful day today, but the pavement was a bit hot for his feet, so we stayed in the grassy area and drank lots of water! It was a wonderful event and our boss Brianna did a great job organizing the whole thing!
There was even a guy (Ron) drawing caricatures of people for free! Of course he immediately nailed down Skyy’s weakness and exactly what he was thinking…
What a great way to end a weekend!
