Dalmatian Dud- Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Looking for the ‘More Tangle Starts’ by Alice Hendon giveaway. Go to this post for details.

Although the Dalmatian is considered a black and white dog by many, it does come with other colored spots. Only black and liver (brown) are accepted for show, but they also come in lemon, blue, brindle, or tricolor spots.

I really didn’t want to post this painting. It’s one of those where I fought with the paint from the moment I started.

This blank postcard lying under papers, for who knows how long, and thought ah! I’ll just use this. Even though the rough texture wasn’t really right for a smooth coated dalmatian. And the paint didn’t want to stick, so there was obviously something on the card. Eh. It got done, lol.

  1. Well, I don’t see anything wrong with it. I think it is wonderful and kudos to you for painting all those spots!

  2. If you just painted 100 more….you could make a MOVIE!!!! hahaha.
    As for muddy….All my dogs loved mud. This only adds to the believability! 🙂
    But I DO get how you feel….we always have a image of what we are trying to get across and feel let down when it doesn’t match the end product. But since I have no image….I think he’s PERFECTLY dashing dalmation!
