My Jersey cow Painting as a Tattoo!!
This is one of the craziest ways I've ever seen anyone "pirate" my artwork (and in this case, I didn't even mind being pirated!). I was at Portland Saturday market late this past summer (yes, summer is officially over around here) when this young couple came into my booth and were looking at some of my artwork. Suddenly, the girl screeched with delight and pulled out the print of one of my favorite paintings, my "Sweet Jersey Cow." She then showed me her leg (photos above).
She said she found my painting through Google images and fell so in love with it that she had it (plus a made-up body) tattooed onto her leg. It was a pretty amazing day, to be sure, and a lot of fun, too. Of course, I had to give her a free print after she went to all that trouble with one of my painting images.
Sorry, I didn't get your names, young couple. And, also, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to finally get this fun experience posted. Just too busy, I'm afraid. But anyway, it was great to meet you both.
