About this artwork
Artist Jeff Fleming shows a contemporary portrait of a charming dog bouncing a blue ball with its button nose. Dalmatians have a storied history of their contributions to helping firefighters, says Jeff. He pays tribute to their bravery and adds the stars and stripes background to emphasize their important role in American history. Jeff creates details with brushes and string for decorative patterns, whisking paint in random strokes for a dynamic boost of energy.
