ARTIST STATEMENT

This panel is a work of love.  In it, you will see my two children, oops I mean my two pets, Lilly the Boston Terrier and Zoey the Pug.  Since I felt I needed more participants to make it lively, I  added


"Photo by John Rankin."

my dogs’ friends.  Riley, the dog at the top of the slide, is the only male.  He is a more relaxed guy, and seems to be watching over his women.  Next in line is Penny, the long-haired Dachshund, who is a little skittish over new situations.  I definitely think she was right for this scene.  Then comes my Lilly who is a bit on the zany side, and somewhat awkward.  When she gets wound up, you never know what she will do.  Next is  Zoey, whose determination and stubbornness will not stop her from going into the water even though it appears she will soon be clobbered by Lilly.   And last but not least is Tootles, the small poodle who is just happy to be on the side lines, and at five pounds, she’s not about to get tangled up in that mess.

 

I hope this panel will bring smiles to the kids and to the adults, too.  It’s been fun.
