Boxer Love [Art Smart Academy]

I present to you: The Boxer Love Mug

This past Saturday night was a date night with some friends.  We had been wanting to check out this really neat place called Art Smart Academy.  If you've never heard of them, Art Smart Academy is a great little place that teaches fine art and pottery.  You can go in, pick out a pottery piece, and have a great time painting it.  All fees are included in the price of the piece you pick out.  The large mug I picked out was only $19!  Makes for a great time.  You can also like them on their Facebook page.

So I was looking around for something that would inspire me.  Someone had painted a nice little Boston Terrier on a plate.  Then we saw this nice little vase that has some pencil sketched flowers on it.  My immediate thought was to do a mug for Erin with her boxer, Tucker, who recently passed away.

I used a reference photo, a medium mug, and a black, brown, yellow, and pink pottery underglaze pencils.

I put Tucker's mug on the front of the mug (see what I did there?).  I sketched "Boxer Love" on the other side of the mug.  I wanted to do something on the inside, so I put a paw print in the bottom.  I wanted it to be unique, so I left a silhouette of a boxer on the inside of the paw print.  Then on the inside lip, I did dog bones.  What dog doesn't like dog bones?
