So, a couple of weeks ago, Akemi and I watched a documentary about artist Ushio Shinohara and his wife (and fellow artist) Noriko. Ushio is known for his boxing paintings which involve him donning a pair of boxing gloves, dipping them in paint, and then pummelling out his artistic expression on canvas.
The film, by Zachary Heinzerling, is great and you should definitely check it out on Netflix. Anyway, it inspired our Bubba – not a boxer but a pug – to do a little artistic pummelling of his own. With a little help from Akemi and I…
The artist double-checks his equipment.
Sourced from Michael’s and the local Pet View: paints, painting equipment, sponges, doggy socks and booties.
She chose to go blue – dark and light.
And set up the mini canvases at a dedicated boxing/painting station.
The artist was outfitted with the proper equipment.
Then transferred over to yours truly who would help direct his artistic expression.
Ready to punch out a masterpiece!
Bubba proudly displays his work.
Now to get these babies framed.
A hard-earned rest.
