Finishing up a new Niles giraffe. He won’t make it to the shop looks like. He had a couple people calls dibs on our Facebook page.
I know. I know. It’s Tuesday. Not Wednesday. But I had a very productive day so here is an early peek at some work in progress.
The stormtrooper helmet is one of the smaller size 5inchers. I will make it available along with at least one other (hoping two others) closer to May the 4th.
A look at some Peanut elephants. Five total. Most likely holding back for Designer Con.
And finally one Niles and two Daphne giraffes. That will also be held back for Dcon. I feel like my booth theme this year will be Zoo.
“Spuds” and my three dimensional version of Monet’s Japanese Bridge waterlillies have both sold. And are off to their forever home in Virginia. I had always hoped that “Poky Little Puppy” would stay a bonded pair with “Spuds”. But hopefully he finds his forever home soon too.
Handpainted custom mini portrait pendants will be available in the shop soon. In gold and silver. Very limited numbers (like eight spots total most likely). Stay tuned
“Beauty In the Storm” 12×12 acrylic, ink and gold foil.
Not sure when this one will end up in the shop. I’ve been having trouble sleeping the past several weeks. Not just momming stuff either. I can’t seem to shut off my brain. But it’s in this exhaustive fog that I tend to create my best work. I’m not thinking at all about colors, what I want it to look like, or even letting those rare moments of doubt creep in… I’m. Just. Painting. Feeling it as I go. No idea on an outcome. The best muse it turns out lurks in my heart. Not in my head.
Customized a GID 2.5 inch Tenacious Toys Danger Dog with a shamrock theme. He has a green swarvski studded collar with black clover. Emerald eyes to go with his green marbled paint job with rainbow dot splashes. He is a one of one and in the etsy shop now.
After the males sold out so quickly I thought it only fair to do a couple female Lucky Boxers. And they sold out even faster! I won’t be do anymore shamrock themed boxer pieces for the month. You’ll have to wait till next year. But we have gotten some other theme requests through social media. So stay tuned as the year goes on.
Lack of sleep is getting to me. I’m finding exercise isn’t much of a stress reliever currently. And meditating is impossible when taking care of a toddler. So I’ve turned to very small, detailed painting to unwind. Here is the first in a series of locket paintings I’ll be doing.
We haven’t had a Management Monday in forever! So I think we are overdue. We’re going to auction off this lone Lucky Boxer on Monday starting when I wake. And ending at 6pm PST. Bidding will occur on our Facebook page. And wings can be added if that is something the winner would like.
I know, I know….it’s not WIP Wednesday. But I was just too excited not to share after the statue we did for BLR raised around $1300 for rescue boxers.
So I’m finishing up the final touches on our next boxer statue headed off to fundraising. He will be helping rescue boxers at New Jersey Boxer Rescue. This march through their Facebook page. I’ll post information about it as soon as I have it.
