My Chihuahua Bean says: Happy Wednesday Amigos!
I've spent most of the week working on Zoe, a torn paper pet portrait commission that I received from another artist who lives in Michigan. I always feel immensely flattered when another artist commissions me. I have great respect for the gorgeous work she creates. I'll have to post some pictures sometime soon so you can see her lovely work!
Also on my desk are 6 ATCs I created and one of them was promised as a prize to last weeks commenters. I'll announce the winner a bit later in this post.
Here's my desk:
I stood on my chair for this one, taking life and limb in hand since my floor is wooden and my chair is on casters....whatever was I thinking! Anyway, I'm safe and sound and here's the snapshot. To the Left is my Zoe Portrait work in progress. The first t 3 layers have been put down, (about 14 hours.) Final shading and layer touch ups are next and then Zoe will get adhered to a cradled birch frame and lastly painted effects to complete the project. I should have the completed work to share with you next week (I hope!)
Center are the ATCs for my winner to choose from and just behind that are some scraps of junk I found on my walk that will eventually become part of one of my mixed media pieces.
Here's a couple of close ups of the work on Zoe:

A lot of you were asking about my crazy reading glasses with the lights on them. I bought them in a Rite Aid. They were around $24. They have batteries that are supposed to have a 50+ hour life to them and are replaceable. They are not any heavier than my regular reading glasses. My Son says I look like a dork in this picture...LOL...I'll embrace dorkiness for a good pair of reading glasses that have lights!...but my Son said post a non dork picture too so here it is as well!
Well thanks for stopping by to visit my studio today! I can't wait to see what you've been up to. No idea what I'm talking about, well then click on over to Stamping Ground and meet our delightful host Julia Dunnit and join the fun!
