Congratulations to Kelly of Thom's Daughter. She is a wonderful artist and her blog is lots of fun! Your name was drawn from a hat to win one of my Art Chunks! All you have to do is go to my Etsy Store and pick which Art Chunk you would like to have and then convo (contact me through Etsy) to tell me which one you like, along with your mailing address. If it hasn't been sold when I get the message, your chosen piece will be on the way! Thanks to everyone who entered. Oh, and in my Etsy Shop if you buy three or more items, the shipping is FREE!
Now, about this little Calico Kitty. I didn't have time to paint this weekend because we had lots of fun family activities, but I did manage to needle felt this little cutie. This time I used a couple pieces of pipe cleaners inside so it is somewhat movable. She (all true calicos with all three colors on the face are supposedly females) is made of hand dyed 100% wool. She will be listed on Ebay tonight if you would like to check her out. I worked on her while I watched the Natalie Wood version of Miracle on 34th Street and the old Little Women with my daughters. We love those old movies this time of year. I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. I know I did.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
