The Batavia Schools mascot is a bulldog. Last spring, there was a student art show at the elementary school, and ceramic bulldogs painted by various families were displayed.

I did not submit an entry.

I did buy a bulldog, however, and eventually painted it during my daughter’s birthday outing to Ceramics on the Fox.

My bulldog is a tribute to the state of Michigan and all the water we left behind when we moved back to Illinois. Enjoy!
