Swimming in Coffee

"Swimming in Coffee"

9x6 coffee and ink on paper
$25 unframed $5 shipping in the US

Our dog Zephyr is my training partner. I run with him 4 to 5 days a week and in the summer he's been known to swim a mile or two at a time with me. There is nothing he likes more than swimming.

This coffee hound painting is based on the first time he every swam. I was visiting a friend in Meredith, NY and we were picking blue berries out by this little pond. I figured I'd see if he liked swimming by throwing a stick in the water for him. Out he went, as fast as he could. To this day we can't be around water with him, unless we let him swim in it.
