An artist pup.

We all like to imagine what are pups would be like with more human-esque qualities (or is that just me?), but never had I imagined I’d come across a dog that paints. Then I read about Piper, the one-eyed bulldog who paints abstract art for charity. How amazing is that?

His owner, Jessica Stone, who is an artist herself, says Piper used to follow her into the studio and just stare at her. Finally she gave him his own brush, held up some paper and watched as he held the brush in his mouth to create strokes. Now he paints regularly and 10% of every piece of his that’s sold goes toward the San Antonio Bulldog Rescue.

Jessica says: “I think what’s so beautiful about her work and so unique is that it’s completely free. A human could never do what she does because even if we think we’re being free, we still are watching, we still have some kind of control. And she’s not controlled at all, and her pieces are just so carefree and whimsical, and they amaze me.”

    I actually got one of these paintings for Christmas last year. Being an English Bulldog owner myself, I fell in love with these paintings. The owner of the shop is SO nice and I love that I now have a story to tell behind my painting. It’s quite the conversation starter!

  2. Oh that is so awesome! I was so amazed when I read about her.

  3. What a lovely story and how wonderful the funds go towards helping rescued bulldogs. I just love this.
