Each one is done with Inktense pencils on paper
then collaged onto an acrylic painted small canvas
measuring 4" by 4" by 1 1/2" deep.
They can be hung or placed to sit upright on a surface.
The cat has a floral scrap paper blouse with real little buttons.
I'm liking using different paper and maybe random items, like the buttons.
Then I did another Dachshund because I know a lot of Dachshund owners! LOL!
and lastly, I wanted to use the Therapist quote because it's true for me.
But next up I need to work on some small commissioned paintings.
I had been asked to do a painting of a friends five dogs, all on one tiny canvas
in a more realistic style.
I wasn't given a deadline and I really was dragging my feet.
I sketched out some things but never was happy.
Recently I met up with this friend and she asked about them and I told her that I just couldn't seem to get them all in the proper scale but....
that I'd do it, eventually.
She laughed and said why didn't I just do them individually and in whatever style and whatever color I like.
Suddenly I was full of ideas!
I'm pretty sure I know how I will be creating them.
The only problem now is....time.
I still have not been contacted by the Art/Antique place
and truly, I don't even care now.
It got me painting again and that's what I needed!
I'm still working on setting up a shop but I've opened a business Facebook page!
Yep, slowly but surely.
