Paint Party Friday March 16th, 2012


Welcome Paint Party Friday Friends!  

 I've finished several projects this week.   


       
Close Up of Fun Mixed Media Fish



Original 12 X 12 Pop Art Pup Torn Paper Pet Portrait "Be....Believe"




Caleb next to photograph used for inspiraton, photograph came from Pinterest, then Pinner did not know who the original artist of the photograph was.

The first photo are of  some mixed media fish I did to share with a group of art friends.


Next,  I finished another Torn Paper Pet, this time I did a Pop Art Pet. He's the first I did as Pop Art versus completely realistic and I'm pleased as punch with the results.  The piece is called "Be....Believe"


I wanted to try a more fun not quite so realistic style so that I would have other options for my pet portrait clients. Now that he is finished he will become part of my Original Art inventory for my shop .  

So now I have to be a good girl and work on my next delightful torn paper pet commissions.  Here he is, with a market on cuteness quotient.  His name is Samson and I hope to have a good start on him next week to share with you all.

and right after Samson comes Tootsie Roll! Isn't he awesome!    They both are going to be so much fun to create!!!!

And thanks to all of you who take the time to visit and comment!  I'm off now to go visiting with you all!  Happy Friday!

I so love your POP dog art!! So unique. It's not something we see at every street corner, so it's really appealing.
