WOYWW and Paint Party Friday December 14- 16, 2011

"Time keeps on slippin...slippin...slippin...into the future" To borrow a phrase from Steve Miller.  I'm having a hard time believing that it's December 14th already.

Funny story, I took the pic of my studio for today and emailed it to myself labeled WOYWW.  Later going into my email to find this pic and upload it for my blog I see, much to my chagrin, someone has sent me an email with the subject line "Whore"  Well I'm already to get fuming mad when I realize the email is from me!  I guess spell check thought "Whore" was a good substitution for WOYWW!  LOL!

Well anyway, it's hard to believe that it is once again time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday hosted by the most wonderful Ms.  Julia Dunnit  and Paint Party Friday hosted by the fabulous Kristen and Eva.  I'm combining the two this week because I'm sure I won't have the opportunity to finish anything worth showing between Wednesday and Friday this week.

I straightened my studio table top this morning because I was a bit tired of being nose deep in torn paper scraps. Of course I'll be messing it up later today when I start my next pup!

Here's My studio table, Harry is finished and is about to get adhered to his canvas and get a UV protective finish.  There's a picture of Henrie the next pup portrait I've been commissioned to create and a Luminary House I'm working on as a holiday gift.



You remember Harry right, well here he is created from torn paper next to his photo

and here's approximately what he will look like adhered to his canvas.  The customer ask me to match the background color to a Hermes blue handbag. I'm happy to say she's been thrilled with the proofs I've been sending her throughout the process of creating this sweet little fella.


Stop by and check out what's going on with other artists' happy place by visiting WOYWW over at Stamping Ground or what everyone is painting at Paint Party Friday!

That's funny about the "whore" thing. Why does Spellcheck always think it knows best?

And wowwwwww on the dog portrait--looks amazing with all of that detail.

Melisa said...

LOL, that's so funny! I had to turn spellcheck off on my texting app because it was bungling things so badly and I'd never notice until after I'd sent the message. I'm so glad to see you've started another torn paper pet portrait. They just fascinate me!
