Creative Interpretations - Dachshund

"How God Made Dachshunds"
written by Julie Wrigley Smith ©1996

God made a little dachsie
to brighten up our day.
He took a bit of sunshine,
laughter, love, and play,
and rolled it up in a sausage shape
just right for a hug,
with bright eyes full of mischief
set in its little mug.
With little paws a pattering,
to take it here and there-
and a cold wet nose-but then He thought,
"Oh, what about the hair?
Shall I make it long and silky,
or wiry, that's so sweet, or make it simple, and have it smooth
and satiny and neat?
And what about the color-
how can I pick just one?
Shall it be black, or red or brown
or dappled, just for fun?"
He pondered while He made the world,
And all creatures great and small-
And then the answer came to Him-
"OF COURSE! I'll make them ALL!!"
So remember that a dachshund
is special, from above His coat of many colors
is a sign of God's great Love.

The pup had an amazed look to it, so I went for a maze feel.

Vitaly, thanks for letting us play with this cute little guy.

Like Dan, I followed your tutorial (it's become a habit with me). I can't say I've come close to achieving what you do with it, but I keep trying.

Another Vitaly watercolor version.
Its great to see all the slight variations from Vitalys tutorial even though we are presumably using all the same tools and techniques.
Thanks again Vitaly for sharing your skills.
