Graffiti Piece Finished!

In my last post (here) I showed the photograph inspiration for this piece, commemorating my first Future Dog Guide puppy, Dime. Thanks to some very tired puppies, I found more studio time and managed to get this piece in my Graffiti series done!












I free motion stitched the bricks using a cream thread before adding the letters to make up Dime's name.




As with the first in the series, I carried some of the brick and paint elements over the side so they would add interest to the sides of the canvas.  You can see that in the next two images.


And finally...the puppy wall...I can't wait to foster more puppies and keep adding to this commemorative wall!
