This piece is named after Bob Dylan's "If Dogs Run Free". These lyrics appear on the dog's chest:

True love needs no company /
It can cure the soul, it can make it whole /
If dogs run free

This free standing Bull Terrier is made of paper and wire. No paint is used. Magazine paper is used for its durability and to "paint" this lively and whimsical dog sculpture. Like a painter, I have a palette of papers in an array of colors, textures, and patterns to work with. In addition, I can select from a collection of illustrations, photos, and words.

I start my one-of-a-kind dog sculptures with a wire armature that is wrapped solidly in magazine paper and glue and, as a result, the final piece is *amazingly* sturdy! After the muscles and form are defined, the piece is covered with pages from Bark, my favorite dog magazine. So you will discover dog references sprinkled throughout. Each piece is varnished with three layers for UV protection and moisture resistance.

The sculpture captures the essence of the Bull Terrier in three dimensions and makes a truly unique portrait! Each of my signed and dated original handmade creations is a great addition to any dog lover's collection.

Title: “If Dogs Run Free”
Media: Paper and wire
Size: 12.75"W x 10.25”H x 5.5”D
