Rocket Dog Saves our Planet

Hello again. It's been about a week since I've been here on the blog and I definitely miss it. Don't mean to be off of coarse, but I had some deadlines that I had to get done. Plus, my three boys are still out for the summer and just because they're older doesn't mean they don't need attention. Honestly, I got more things done when they were younger. Now we have constant kids at my house 24/7 and I'm driving all over for sports.
So enough about that part of my life, lets talk about Rocket Dog. This is one of my new pieces. I love it. I used old torn vintage children's books for the world and the word PLANET. My mom collects these books for me at estate sales every week. And the book used for this painting was actually a book about a dog.

I even cut out the word dog and placed it on the US. I love the rich bright colors from my paints against the old muted tones from the books.

This particular painting is going in a very hip Art Gallery called ART251.
They will be getting a bunch of my Rocket Dog's. Well, I'm actually taking them over today and will be hung tomorrow and ready to sell...yeah. I heart to that the owners are very excited about Rocket Dog as much as I am.
Ok so I'm off. And I'm definitely going to try and blog again tomorrow. I have so much to tell that will be going on with my art in the next couple of months. More magazine interviews and more..for just a little hint. See you later- Marnie V.
