So my sweet Missy-puppy (well 11 year old dog) passed away about 1 month ago. I had been promising to make some sort of art to remember her. One day I saw a beer cap, and remembering how we used to pour her a few drops of beer on the concrete outside to lick up, I thought I would paint her portrait inside.

So, without furthur ado:

Now that is a great craft!  I can see hundreds of pop-top portraits covering a piece of furniture or in a frame or something.  If only I could paint!  I have yet to tackle that frontier.  Since I'm now friends with OriginalYouth, maybe I'll start!!!   Smiley

Good Job...love the colors, also.
