slow and steady…

28 Apr

…wins the race, right? This saying would especially make sense if the race was without a definitive finish line… 

 

I have been {very} slowly working away at a large-scale personal piece for several months now. I seem to only find minutes, not hours, to add to it, but I am happy with what has emerged on the page.  


  

It has been a welcome treat to have a drawing to go to when I find a bit of free time. I think with a couple more committed studio sessions, it will be complete. If I can keep up this tortoise type pace, then this is hopefully the start of a new series. Imagine what will happen if I channel my inner hare?

feeling foxy

IMG_1152 IMG_1151 IMG_1149I’ve been dreaming up ideas for an adorable commission I’m doing for a cute little company… Because of this, my sketchbook has been feeling foxy. These are just quick little doodles, but I’m trying to sketchbook more often. Hope you like these furry little cuties.

two curled cuties

I spoke briefly about Jenn Cutnam in my last two mail art posts, but to get you up to speed, she is an absolute doll who I luckily met at the One of a Kind Show in Vancouver. She was working at the event, helping a friend who is a jewelry maker, and during one of her walk-abouts, she stumbled upon my booth and fell in love with one of my large scale etchings of a cute little red fox all curled up. Recently she surprised me with the most adorable photo ever of the piece hung in her home with one of her little cats laying underneath, all snuggled into the blankets on the couch. How heart-warming are these two curled up cuties together? The sheer adorableness of it almost made me melt. I absolutely LOVE when customers/friends share photos of my artwork in their homes. It means a great deal to know that I get to be a part of their every day lives. Thanks so much for sharing this Jenn!
