Augie Acrylic and Magazine Pages Collage

A project for the hubby. I finally finished a magazine collage of our dog, Augie. She was a wonderful dog and we all still miss her. I made this for my hubby's office. I copied a silk sceen characature my husband made of Augie onto a stretched canvas. I textured the background w/ gesso, a paint texture tool, and acrylic paints. I collaged her body and skis out of magazine pages. (the close ups of the white areas and her skis are below) I wanted to add her name to he piece, but for some reason my husband didn't want it on there. So, I textured it into the gesso. If you look really close, you can see it........ ;)
To see what Augie looked like in real life, you can see her memory page here: She's the doggie on the left! :)
