I was in a local garden center a few days ago, taking photos of statuary to use as reference photos for still life paintings, when I ran across this adorable little statue of the Georgia’s Bulldog Mascot. Now I’m not much of a football fan, but I am probably the only person in South Carolina who isn’t passionate about our local football teams. Even I know that putting out a statue that might be mistaken for Georgia’s bulldog mascot in the heart of Clemson U and South Carolina U territory is a sure fire invitation to war. I could just imagine the owner of the nursery showing up in the morning to find the Bulldog ripped to pieces with Clemson Tiger footprints all about the remains … Or maybe it would be carried off entirely with a few only South Carolina’s Gamecock feathers where the Bulldog had sat. What is that nursery owner thinking?
I laughed so hard that I had to paint a picture of the little guy while he was still in one piece.
