This is being printed today, so it is time to pop your name in the "basket" if you would like a chance to win a signed, unframed Lithograph of my new painted paper cutting, "With Loving Hands". Size is 16x20 which is a standard frame size. Any reader of the Gazette, living anywhere in the world, may enter by leaving a comment. If you left a comment previously (2 post down) ABOUT this artwork, your name will be entered twice.
I will devise some clever way to chose the name a week from today. I'm pretty good at that!
Since finishing this piece, I've decided to add two "companion" pieces. So I have been working away.
My first order of business was to put in a call to the "Every Creeping Thing" Modeling Agency. They sent over a few models.
This model was quite attractive... but he simply would not stay still..
He kept climbing the curtains...
and helping himself to my coffee. So I gave him the boot. The last I saw of him , he was lurking in the cone flowers. The other model was much more cooperative.
But I guess that's because he was just a little bit D.O.A
Sometimes, you just have to depend on reference books....
dozens and dozens of them.
Then, you just spend countless hours at the drawing board.
At least these models were easy to come by.
This painted paper-cutting will have 30 birds in it! Painting bird feathers gives me a pain. If you would like to follow the development of this piece, click along the border box, entitled,"Works in Progress"
I will show it to you when finished, in the meantime, sign up for the Garden Print!
