Dog Art:Self Pawtrait Challenge

We were so excited when we saw the blog post from Louis Dog Armstrong, the Director of Arts and Entertainment for Blogville and the brilliant woofie behind the blog, Louisdog’s Life about the Self Pawtrait challenge!! Loving art the way Mom and I do, we KNEW we just had to pawticipate!  Here is our entry!

Mom and I created my self pawtrait by taking a photo, and then we popped over to Dreamscope (one of our favorite photo “painting” apps! After painting, we headed over to Ribbet to add some additional elements and a frame. We hope you like it! Mom and I are also posting this on Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop!!!

(No worries, woofies are allowed to enter too!!!)
