Description:
Three cartoon-like dogs around a poker table.
Historical Context:
"Dogs have the strange ability to make whomever they interact with happy, sometimes by their company alone. My art has the same goal: to make people smile and be happy. I've chosen to create this series of illustrations about dogs because of the silly situations that I can place the three characters in as they go about their day while their masters are away. Dogs are not only a special subject for me; many people see dogs as part of their family, even almost human. I know I treat my dog that way. My work plays on the sillier side of this mentality by placing the trio in human situations with a canine twist, or a favorite doggy pastime mixed with human qualities." -Grace Carpenter
