This piece was also recycled out of a piece called �Shopper�. I did the original piece for our exhibition �Gippsland�. It did a bit of touring and even visited China ( although it only had a very select viewing there� but that is another story)
Marian had the idea that I should recycle some of these pieces as they were fun but were not really having much of an outing. To match the theme I played with the dog and changed the shopper�s arm.
Why is the little dog supported by a balloon? I see lots of ladies carrying their little older dogs as they shop and they comment from time to time when you see them: �the dog has arthritis�. It certainly makes it a more fun piece!
