This is awesome! The color, the shape and I bet the dog learns to stay.

I love this! The dog seems to be saying, "As soon as he looks away I am outta here!"

Thank you, Susu! It certainly looks like he has his eye on a squirrel or a chipmunk. I bet he's gone as soon as I turn my back! :D

Lainey Parker:
Thanks so much, Lainey, and, have you seen my dog? He was sitting right over there a minute ago!

On first glance this had the feel of a cave painting, which is probably in line with the 'stay' theme, since it would have been around for while! Love it.

I love the way you interpret this, Jordan. I hope you'll drop in again soon and if you do, I'll be sure to have some Jameson's on hand for the occasion.

I too thought of cave drawing although I wasn't clever enough to think of the 'stay' aspect;0 I really like this piece, well worth the backwards walk in your archives!

All I can say is what Ambrose says at the end-of-stanza reply in the 1959 novelty hit "Ambrose (Part 5)" by Linda Laurie. Have a listen, you'll see what I mean. :D
