What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday June 27th WOYWW
A great big hello to my WOYWW friends. Thanks for stopping by you fabulous snoops!
Today my desk is mostly clean, I say mostly because even though I washed it off and scrapped it with a credit card to get off the worse lumps and glumps of glue and paint many affectionately stay around and that's just fine by me.
Off to the left is a WIP. I drew a cat and cut out a stencil from Mylar notebook divider I had lying around. Then I flipped over a 9 X 12 canvas that had been stretched over a wood frame and adhered interesting bits of paper and some rusty bolts I had salvaged. Anyway that's as far as I've gotten with it. I haven't decided the final direction or color, I just knew that I wanted the salvaged bits to be sort of a shadowbox behind the silhouette of the kitty. I'll post it again as it comes further along.
My proud accomplishment of the week was completing the Chigirie (Torn Paper) Pop Art Pet Portrait commission that I've been working on for weeks. My client squealed with delight and superlatives, there is such an amazing sense of satisfaction when a commission goes over so well. You always hope your vision and your clients will meet in a happy place. This particular client was so fantastic because she completely abdicated the project to my discretion, a truly joyful experience.
Anyway here is Zoe:
I've been fortunate to have a steady stream of commissions and have another waiting in the wings, this is Henry.
Doesn't he have the most delightful face? My new client also wants the Pop art style. I'm looking forward to working on it but today I'm taking the day off and maybe tomorrow too as I like just a bit of time to clear my head between each piece that I create.
Hey all you U.K. friends, are you excited about the Olympics starting in your country soon? Anyone live nearby? How fun!
As always a very special thanks to our host Julia Dunnit from Stamping Ground for hosting this fabulous peek into each others lives.
