The Dog and the Shadow by bumble-boo The Dog and the Shadow by bumble-boo
Now available in my Etsy shop as a print!

6x6" Arches 300lb Watercolour and Gouache

"A DOG, crossing a bridge over a stream with a piece of flesh in his mouth, saw his own shadow in the water, and took it for that of another Dog, with a piece of meat double his own in size. He therefore let go his own, and fiercely attacked the other Dog, to get his larger piece from him. He thus lost both: that which he grasped at in the water, because it was a shadow; and his own, because the stream swept it away."

Wow, this looks so simple yet attractive -- I love it. :3 It would look really cute on many things like children stories, tees, and mug cups..!
