After painting white walls inside my studio all week, I had an idea about how I am going to finish the painted outdoor fresco of our beloved German Shepherd. It is not exactly a fresco in the technical art term, since I used acrylic paint on cement, as opposed to the ancient method of applying paint pigment mixed with water on fresh, wet plaster or lime mortar.

I started working on this fresco, or if you prefer, dog graffiti art, years ago, but I didn’t finish it because I didn’t know what to add to it. Now, I have an idea. It has something to do with trees. TO BE CONTINUED!

Here is the photo for the original inspiration – our dog purveying the garden.

And this is the painted version, situated in an outside portico at my house in Umbria.
