Artist Studio Day and WOYWW, Oct 9th, 2013

Hello lovely friends visiting for Artist Studio Day and WOYWW!

My desk is boring and empty today, the only thing on it is my fabulous new wireless keyboard and mouse (YAY!) just so I could type this quick blog post.  I am getting ready to start a new hand torn paper pet portrait commission this afternoon so I should have some delicious photos of a messy studio table next week!

What I do have to share are a couple of great photos that came in from clients that have commissioned hand torn paper pet portraits from me.  It pleases me to no end to see them with their pets and my art!

Sasha sure has grown since her puppy portrait!

Oliver is patiently waiting for his portrait scheduled for next year!

Enjoy your new keyboard and mouse, they look very cool! Your pieces are AMAZING! I know when someone likes a card I make I am very happy, but for your to see the pet with their person, it must really be special. Such talent! Winnie#76

Happy Belated WOYWW. I have a keyboard and mouse like yours - they are great. Ideal for when I want to craft in front of my pc screen, and I can just push them out of the way! Fantastic pictures of your clients and their commissions - must be so satisfying to see those. Ali x #45

Wooohooo double monitors! (That's the first thing that went through my mind when I saw the picture.) I'm used to working with double screens, but currently I only have a small one at work. I'm adjusting, with lots of muttering and complaining :P.
Beautiful portraits you made! Handtorn... sounds like lots of work!
