A new coat of paint for Stonington dog ornaments
Stonington — This artist puts her painting skills to work in her own front yard.
Bibiana King was repainting her dog lawn ornaments Wednesday in front of her home in the borough. She said most people keep the ornaments as they are sold in the natural cement color, but she wanted hers to be black. They were painted several years ago but needed to be repainted.
They're certainly eye-catching. She said people walking through the village have even told her their dogs bark at the ornaments when passing by.
King is an artist and painted the mural in the children's section of the Stonington Free Library and also a mural for the Bricks and Murals Community Art Project in downtown Westerly and Pawcatuck.
