Art of the Day: Wednesday May 17, 2006

Stuffed Blue Dog!

- by Jenny Doss

This week's theme: Fibre Art

EBSQ has a wide variety of galleries, filled with a diverse assortment of art. Over the upcoming months, Art Of The Day will be featuring explorations of the EBSQ Galleries that will be more in-depth than one short week can provide.

For the next few weeks, Art Of The Day will present art from the Fibre Art gallery.

Fibre Art is the use of textiles to create art or the creation of the textiles themselves.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Stuffed Blue Dog! by Artist Jenny Doss
This piece was a prototype for squeaky dog toys, and it is based on one of my paintings, "Blue Dog Contemplates a Fireplug" (see photo below). It is stitched by hand, and features bright orange contrast stitching against a striking azure blue "fur". There is a squeaker inside (what dog toy is complete without a squeaker?), and although this project has been temporarily put on hold, I do plan on making more based on the characters in my art. Yes, that includes cats!
