Who Let These Dogs Out?

I know this might seem like a stretch, but some people do refer to their feet as "dogs," as in "these tired old dogs" or "I've got to get off my dogs." When I read the challenge for Sunday Postcard Art, all I could think of were dogs in hats or dogs with wings, and somebody's already done that better than I could. And I didn't have any good dog images anyway, but I DID have these fabulous shoes. So, I did a little different interpretation of dogs."I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and suddenly everything was alright!"

Thank you, Mandy! Your work has really inspired me. I used some oil pastels on this one, but I couldn't figure out how you use ink over oil pastels.

I call my feet dogs all the time. This is great piece--makes me wanna go out on the town in some heels.

Oh, I don't know who like the Professor Longhair, but it's great to hear that sort of music--reminds me of home.
