Melbourne Daily Photo

Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Dogs - with Attitude

Doesn't the expression just say "Princess Poodle"?
This amazing sculpture was created by Janette MacGregor and was part of her art show "The Quirky Side of Life" at the Gasworks Arts Park in March this year.

She used a gutter wire armature which she sewed together then used shredded paper to make a professional papier mache mixture to build the body. Janette then embellished it with imported tiles, paint, glass eyes and false eyelashes on the poodle which was a gift from her makeup artist daughter and mirror tiles on the poodle. The dog is life size.


Today's quote: They're not poodles, they're art ~ Rachael Leigh.

This is very poodle-like! She caught the "anima" of the animal well. Nice to hear from you again. Hope that all is well.
